Rep. Weber statement on the Debt Limit Agreement
Washington, May 31, 2023
Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Randy Weber (TX-14) released the following statement on H.R. 3746:
"Washington spending has become wasteful and unsustainable. I have a duty to represent Texas' Fourteenth District: They sent me to Washington, and I cannot vote for this bill in good faith.
"Our nation's debt is approaching $32 TRILLION—to put that in perspective, it already costs over $95,000 for every man, woman, and child. And it is only growing—with an estimated $4 trillion to be added on by January 1, 2025. We need to ensure that we are not giving President Biden another blank check."I respect Speaker McCarthy's team for negotiating this package with the hand they were dealt, and a stand-alone debt limit increase would have been even worse. House Republicans were united behind the Limit, Save, Grow Act, but too few provisions were included in the deal. Regrettably, the deal just does not go far enough to get America back on track."
