Congressman Francisco "Quico" Canseco (TX-23) released the following statement after the House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected H.R. 1954, a so-called "clean" debt limit increase of $2.4 trillion:
"No, I will not support raising the debt limit as that will not solve our spending driven debt crisis. The people of Texas sent me to Congress to end the out-of-control government spending. It is time we cut up the national credit card and force government to live within its means, just like American families and small businesses do every day."
