U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after President Obama's press conference today:
"The American people reject the out of control government spending that has fueled the current debt crisis. My constituents in Georgia are adamantly opposed to business as usual and have demanded reforms that make Washington smaller so our communities can grow and create more jobs. The president is wrong to think of a debt limit increase as a rubber stamp. Those days are over. The debt limit is one of the last stop signs left in Washington, and Congress should use it to force the president to enact tax and spending reform so that future generations do not bear the burden of this government's irresponsible behavior."
