Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today voted against Democrats’ attempt to raise the nation’s debt ceiling to fund their Far-Left agenda. She released the following statement:
“House Democrats have failed to do their job. Instead of responsibly funding the government, they have chosen to prioritize their Far-Left Socialist wish list.
“Nancy Pelosi has even caved to her own party’s radical, Anti-Semitic request to remove funding for Israel’s Iron Dome, a purely defensive system that protects our ally from Hamas’ rocket attacks.
“House Democrats’ funding crisis is of their own making, but they still want Congress to write them a blank check and raise the debt ceiling to pay for their $3.5 trillion Socialist wish list. This reckless spending will only bankrupt our future generations.
“I refuse to bow to Democrats’ partisan games at the expense of our nation’s future.”
In August, Stefanik joined over 100 of her Republican colleagues in writing a letter opposing increasing the debt ceiling.
