Mike Pence Statement on Debt Limit Deal

Today, Vice President Mike Pence issued the following statement on the recent debt limit deal.

“The United States is staring down a debt crisis over the next 25 years that’s driven by entitlements, and nobody in Washington, D.C., wants to talk about it. Congress’ debt limit deal doesn’t just kick the can down the road, it uses Washington smoke and mirror games to make small reforms while weakening our military at a time of increasing threats from foreign adversaries. It’s time to be honest with the American people and get everybody to the table to restore fiscal integrity to our nation. By ignoring the drivers of our national debt and avoiding honest conversations with the American people, President Biden and the Washington establishment continue to pile the burden of debt onto the backs of our grandchildren, and the American people deserve better.”
