Blunt says raising debt ceiling must be accompanied by plans to cut spending

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 11, 2011) — U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt issued the following statement today regarding the White House and Congressional Democrats’ reported desire to raise the debt ceiling without putting any cost-cutting measures in place:

“Suggesting that we raise the debt ceiling without implementing substantial policies to cut spending and rein in our skyrocketing debt is simply reckless. Washington can’t continue spending money that we don’t have. That’s why I’ve cosponsored a balanced budget amendment to ensure the federal government lives within its means just like every family and job creator in Missouri and across America. We cannot raise the debt limit without a long-term plan to address our nation’s out-of-control spending, debt, and deficit.”
