Conservatives Should Oppose Irresponsible Debt Ceiling Hike

Washington — According to reports, congressional leaders are planning to raise the nation’s debt ceiling without attaching additional reforms to address the structural nature of America’s annual deficit. Heritage Action released the following statement from vice president Dan Holler:

“Our nation’s structural deficit is driven by historically irresponsible levels of federal spending. Any increase in our nation’s debt ceiling should be paired with serious spending reforms that begin reducing federal spending in real, meaningful ways. Congress cannot simply kick the can down the road to the next generation; instead they should work with the administration to raise the debt ceiling in a responsible way that addresses our nation’s serious fiscal challenges.”
