Roskam Statement on Bipartisan Agreement to Reopen Government and Extend Debt Ceiling

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the following statement after the House voted to reopen the government and extend the debt ceiling:

"Tonight I voted to open the government, remove the threat of default and begin a process where both parties sit down and work on a long-term budget agreement that addresses our crushing debt and deficits. It is my hope that President Obama and Congressional Democrats join us in combating the almost $17 trillion debt that is holding back our economy and diminishing the future prosperity of our children and grandchildren.

"I will continue to fight for fairness for all Americans under the president's health care law, work to protect individuals from the worst parts of the law and seek solutions to create a patient-centered, cost effective healthcare system that does not put bureaucrats between individuals and their health care providers."
