Rep. Rose Votes 'Yes' on Limit, Save, and Grow Act

Washington, DC—Today, U.S. Representative John Rose voted “Yes” on H.R. 2811, the Limit, Save, and Grow Act, a bill to raise the debt ceiling that will save taxpayers $4.8 trillion over the next decade according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

U.S. Representative John Rose released the following statement:

“House Republicans have done our job to responsibly raise the debt ceiling in a way that saves taxpayers an estimated $4.8 trillion and reassures the world that the full faith and credit of the United States is in good standing,” said Rep. Rose. “President Biden and Senate Democrats must listen to the American people—including several elected officials in their own party—and come to the negotiating table instead of recklessly playing partisan politics with America’s fiscal house. I was proud to vote ‘Yes’ on the Limit, Save, and Grow Act which will go a long way towards saving hardworking Tennesseans their taxpayer dollars.”
