Representative Kelly Statement on House Vote to Raise Debt Limit and End Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON, DC—(ENEWSPF)—October 16, 2013. Congresswoman Robin Kelly issued the following statement today in reaction to the House vote to raise the debt limit and end the government shutdown:

“It is about time that my colleagues in the House came together in a bi-partisan manner to end the government shutdown and avoid what would have been a catastrophic default on our nation’s debt obligations. This manufactured crisis, orchestrated by a reckless few in Congress, has shaken the American people’s faith in their leaders and caused the world to question the financial stability of our country,” Rep. Kelly said.

“While I am glad that the most imminent threat to our nation’s financial security is over, we have only bought ourselves a little time before Congress will have to once again debate a comprehensive spending plan for our country.  And in doing so we must break this fruitless cycle of deadlines and doomsday scenarios that put our economy at risk. Congress cannot continue to try to lead from the brink of disaster. I hope that the lingering lessons of this episode encourage us to put partisan politics aside and devise a budget that is in the best interest of the American people.”
