Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement after today’s vote against Democrats’ plan to raise the nation’s debt ceiling by $480 billion. 
“I refuse to help Democrats raise the debt ceiling to fuel their reckless spending and advance their radical agenda,” Stefanik said. “Already, Democrats’ out-of-control spending has created historic inflation, and the American people know exactly who is to blame for why they are paying more for almost everything. Now, Democrats are asking Congress to raise the debt ceiling even as they try to pass trillions more of reckless spending that will only bankrupt our future generations. This crisis is of their own making.”
In August, Stefanik joined over 100 of her Republican colleagues in writing a letter opposing increasing the debt ceiling.
