Rep. Burchett votes against bill to raise the debt ceiling

WASHINGTON, D.C., (Apr. 26, 2023) – Today, U.S. Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) voted against legislation that would raise the debt ceiling. 

H.R. 2811, the Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023 would suspend the debt limit through March 31, 2024 or until an increase in debt of $1.5 trillion, whichever comes first. It would also allow discretionary spending to grow by 1% each year through FY2033.

“I have never voted to raise our debt limit no matter who was in charge. Our country is nearly $32 trillion in debt right now. That’s a debt neither we, nor our kids or grandkids can pay,” said Rep. Burchett. “We need to do whatever is necessary to get back to a balanced budget and meaningful debt reduction so this issue doesn’t keep coming back to haunt us.”
