WASHINGTON — On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement on voting no to raise the debt limit to support the Democrats’ reckless spending spree.
“I have repeatedly said I will not support raising the debt ceiling for the Democrats’ radical agenda that is causing inflation and driving up our national debt. Republicans attempted to pass a bill earlier this week that would have prevented spending cuts to Medicare providers. Democrats blocked it so they could cynically use the issue to increase the debt limit for their partisan deficit spending. Inflation is wiping out wage gains, deficit spending is mortgaging our children’s future, and Democrats need to take responsibility and be held accountable for adding trillions of dollars more to our national debt.”
