Boozman Rejects Proposal to Raise Debt Ceiling

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after opposing the Senate bill to raise the debt ceiling:

“The president and Congressional Democrats continue pursuing a reckless tax and spending spree to advance their partisan agenda. At a time when inflation is already rampant and Arkansans are paying higher prices for more and more essential goods and services, it is the height of irresponsibility to ask for a blank check in order to facilitate even more borrowing and debt, and threatening Americans with a government shutdown to get it is even worse. I will continue to oppose this out-of-control spending and protect hardworking Arkansans from misguided policies that burden future generations.”
