LLPH commends Senator Enzi (R-WY) for his correct vote and hopes that he will continue fighting for fiscal sanity in Washington D.C.
Here is a part of his press release:
“When President Obama was a U.S. senator, he said that raising the debt ceiling was a sign of leadership failure and then voted against raising the debt ceiling,” said Enzi. “That was more than four years ago. What do we call it now? The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in almost four years. Our debt has increased by nearly $6 trillion. This will be the fifth year that we’ve overspent by more than $1 trillion. Why? Because we’re addicted to spending money we don’t have and refuse to honor the limits we’ve put on ourselves.
“Our debt ceiling has to be a line in the sand, not another excuse to extend our credit line. We shouldn’t be kicking the can down the road any longer. What we’re attempting to kick is so much larger and it’s going to crush future generations under the bills we’ve racked up but weren’t willing to pay for.”
“We should pass No Budget, No Pay, but adding it as sweetener to a bad bill is another example of why Congress should stop deal making and start legislating through the committee process with amendments,” Enzi said.
LLPH thanks him for his vote and encourages him to continue voting against any further increases that do not include spending cuts.
