Gosar Votes Against Raising Debt Ceiling

U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, DDS (AZ-01) released the follow statement after his no vote on H.R. 1954—To implement the President’s request to increase the statutory limit on the public debt.

“I was sent to Washington by my constituents with the instructions to rein in federal spending and stop the growth of the deficit.  With that in mind, I voted against the bill to raise the debt ceiling.  This vote was an important step in our fight to restore fiscal sanity.  Earlier this year, the President proposed a budget that would need more than $2 trillion of borrowed money.   Tonight, we sent him a message loud and clear—it’s time to get our financial house in order.  We now owe over $14.3 trillion in borrowed money, and so we also owe it to ourselves, and our children, to stop the reckless borrowing.  This is the time to grow our economy, not our debt.  I will continue to support spending cuts and work to create jobs to develop our economy.”
