YOHO VOTES AGAINST DEBT CEILING INCREASE

Feb 11, 2014
Press Release

WASHINGTON DC  – Today, Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL) voted against S. 548.  The vote, which passed 221-201, with 199 Republicans voting no, will raise the debt ceiling through March 15, 2015. Congressman Yoho provided the following statement:

 “Tonight’s vote to raise our debt limit and increase the debt burden on American families was something I could not support. Time and again, Congress has voted to raise the debt limit without addressing the serious problem of out of control government spending. This crushing debt currently exceeds $17 trillion and is increasing at a steady clip. We must ask ourselves at what point will Democrats and Republicans wake up and address this uncontrollable freight train that doesn’t discriminate according to party affiliation and is the biggest threat to our national security

“I was elected to Congress to work on solutions to decrease the national debt and enact fiscally responsible laws.  I am and always will be committed to doing this. The future of our country, and the futures of our children, and grandchildren depend on what we do here.”
