Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds 43 Senate Republicans for Demanding Spending Cuts and Budget Reforms in Exchange for an Increase in the Debt Ceiling
Atlanta, GA – Forty-three Republican Senators have signed Sen. Mike Lee’s letter demanding spending cuts and structural budget reform as a starting point for negotiations on the debt ceiling. In response, TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:
“Washington spends too much and steals too much from future generations, and it must stop. We thank Senator Lee, Leader McConnell, and all the senators who signed this letter. This letter will give Speaker McCarthy maximum leverage when he meets with President Biden on Tuesday.
“With 43 senators committed to spending cuts and budget reforms, Republicans can filibuster any plan that fails the grade, thereby ensuring that any debt ceiling deal is acceptable to both parties.
“The debt ceiling plan House Republicans passed last month takes a responsible path to get spending and inflation under control. Biden should work constructively with congressional Republicans to adopt a much-needed course correction and start putting our fiscal house in order.”
