Graves Votes Against Raising Debt Limit

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sam Graves (MO-06) released the following statement after voting against legislation to raise the federal debt limit. 

“American families actually have to balance their budgets—something folks in Washington seem to have forgotten how to do. Our national debt is a national disgrace and I refuse to lift the debt limit just so Speaker Pelosi can ram through her $3.5 trillion tax and spend plan that will hammer America’s middle class. We simply cannot afford to saddle our children and grandchildren with mountains of debt to finance her socialist agenda.”
