Himes Statement on House Majority Threats to Hold Debt Limit Hostage to Health Care Delay

Location: Unknown

Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) released the following statement regarding threats from the House Majority that they will tie efforts to raise the nation's debt limit to a delay or defunding of health care reform.

"The world economy depends on the idea that debt of the American government is literally risk free, but the House Majority is ready to call that stability into question just so they can repeat an ideological fight they have already lost multiple times. I urge my colleagues on the Republican side to recognize the severity of their threats and make the adult choice to raise the debt limit without condition or delay."
