WASHINGTON – Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), Republican Leader of the House Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement after voting against legislation that would suspend the federal debt ceiling through December 16, 2022:

 “I cannot support increasing the debt ceiling while Democrats try to enact historic spending increases with no fiscal reforms. Their socialist proposals will cause extraordinary debt to be passed on to our children and grandchildren,” said Congresswoman Kay Granger. “With control of the House, Senate, and White House, Democrats must take responsibility for their reckless spending and address the debt limit themselves.”
