Rep. Andy Harris, M.D., Statement on Debt Ceiling Increase
For Immediate Release:
July 26, 2011
"By an overwhelming amount, Maryland families and businesses have contacted me to demand that the federal government get its fiscal house in order, stop spending more than it takes in, and balance the budget,” said Rep. Andy Harris. “ I disagree with the President - we need a balanced budget amendment, and I won't vote to raise the debt ceiling unless a balanced budget amendment is part of the deal. To create jobs in America again, we must stop the spending spree in Washington."
