Sen. Toomey FAVORS REOPENING GOVERNMENT, BUT NOT RAISING DEBT LIMIT WITHOUT REFORMS
WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) today voted against increasing America's debt burden because the legislation does nothing whatsoever to address the overspending problem that has caused our debt to mount.
"The one major redeeming aspect of this bill is that it reopens the government," said Senator Toomey. "I disagreed with the plan to make funding the government contingent on defunding Obamacare and I am glad this bill will get the shutdown behind us. But I cannot support piling hundreds of billions of dollars of debt on current and future generations of Americans without even a sliver of reform to start putting our fiscal house in order."
