Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) Statement on Congress Raising the Debt Ceiling

Washington, DC - Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) released the following statement in responses to Congress raising the debt ceiling for an additional three months:

“I voted against raising the debt limit because our national debt is already too high. West Virginian families have to balance their budgets each month and the federal government should do the same.

I support and have voted for funding government at the appropriate levels after input from all elected representatives in the regular appropriations bills. Kicking the fiscal can down the road another three months is not a solution to our budget problems.

Voters deserve a Congress that does a better job of finding solutions to our looming national debt crisis,” said Rep. Mooney
