Wicker Statement on Democrats’ Plan to Raise Debt Limit

December 9, 2021

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement on Congressional Democrats’ intent to vote to raise the debt limit:

“Congressional Democrats have rammed through trillions in unnecessary spending over the past year, and next week they will have to finance their spending by raising the debt limit alone – without a single Republican vote.

“It is time for Democrats to go on record and own this reckless spending. Our nation cannot afford to suffer the irreparable damage of a default on our debt.”
