ICYMI: Congress Cloud Votes NO on Biden-McCarthy Debt Limit Deal
Washington, D.C. -Today, Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) issued the following statement regarding his vote against the Biden-McCarthy debt limit deal:
“Our nation is in serious fiscal trouble, and the only way we’re going to fix it is by making real, substantive spending reforms to bring down our debt and preserve our economy for the long haul. Unfortunately, the agreement made by Speaker McCarthy and President Biden fails to achieve that goal. It plays the same fiscal shell games Washington D.C. has used for years, to spend trillions more in taxpayer money while accepting empty promises and fake commitments as if they are actual spending cuts. We can and should do better than that.
That’s why I voted no on this agreement. Congress cannot continue using the American people as collateral for a $31 trillion debt. Instead of caving to the Left’s agenda, we should be working to meet the moment and reach a deal that delivers real reforms and truly puts the country back on track. The American people deserve no less.”
