October 17, 2013 Press Release

“It was a shame and a disgrace that the government of the most powerful nation on earth was recklessly shutdown and allowed to slip perilously close to default.  However, I am glad that tonight the great majority of the members of the House and Senate finally came together and did the right thing.  We passed a clean bill, as we should have had an opportunity to do days ago.  We simply restored the government to normal functioning and raised the debt limit so this country can pay its bills on time, as it has for over 230 years.

S. Treasury should reach its statutory debt limit.

Washington, D.C. – Rep.
