LLPH thanks Senator Corker for standing up for some fiscal sanity and hopes he will continue doing so.
From his Facebook page:
Senators Bob Corker today voted against the debt limit bill and urged Congress to focus on reforming Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. “I hope over the next few months the House and Senate will be able to come together and pass structural, transformative reforms to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid that will save these programs and put our country on a path to fiscal solvency,” said Corker. “We have an obligation to older and younger Americans. Young Americans expect us to solve our fiscal issues so they aren’t saddled with debt and robbed of their opportunity for the American dream, and seniors expect us to honor the commitments we have made to them.” Read more:http://1.usa.gov/WVITfL
We agree and hope that he will vote for spending cuts and against any increase in the debt ceiling without those cuts.
