Congressman Schiff on Extending the Debt Limit

“Tonight, my Democratic colleagues and I took the responsible act of averting a default, which would have been catastrophic for working families. But to our continuing dismay, Republicans refused to govern responsibly and pay our bills. We must never allow our country to default and fail to meet the commitments we’ve made to seniors, veterans, and communities – especially not as our economy is still recovering from the pandemic. Now that Democrats have averted a GOP-made crisis, we continue to focus our efforts on passing legislation to provide for transformative investments in infrastructure, climate action, health care, and children.”
