Washington, DC- Following news that House Speaker John Boehner is rallying Republicans around a debt ceiling increase with no spending reforms, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement: “Governing with Democratic votes to raise the debt limit with no reforms attached is an all-time low for Speaker Boehner. Based on reports, the Boehner debt hike spends money we don’t have to increase entitlement spending and grow the debt. In other words, with the money they spend today, they'll come back and borrow to pay for tomorrow.”
As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your members of Congress and ask that they vote NO on any “clean” debt ceiling increase.
