Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement after voting against raising the debt limit.

“The way Democrats talk about spending trillions of dollars like pocket change, while asking for a blank check book to spend as much as they want without worrying about the repercussions, should concern every single American. It is critical that we don’t default on our debts, but equally as important that we don’t allow Democrats to spend as much as they want, on whatever they want. We shouldn’t give Democrats a free pass to spend Iowans’ money irresponsibly and jeopardize the entire global economy. Democrats should drop their multi-trillion-dollar social spending extravaganza and commit to working with Republicans to put our nation on a sustainable fiscal path that respects taxpayers.” – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
