Sens. Rick Scott, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson and Mike Braun Applaud McCarthy & House Republicans on Debt Limit Plan

April 19, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senators Rick Scott, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson and Mike Braun released a joint statement applauding Speaker Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans on their sweeping debt limit package that repeals President Biden and Washington Democrats’ obsession with over-taxing and over-spending while reforming the wasteful practices responsible for bringing America’s debt to $31 trillion.


The Senators said, “We congratulate the House Freedom Caucus, Speaker McCarthy, and House Republicans on their framework to fundamentally transform the way Washington works. The broken status quo in Washington has failed and put American families on the hook for more than $31 trillion in debt. The time for accountability is NOW. Inflation is crushing the middle class, Democrats are trying to outlaw the American energy grid while funding elitist, progressive policies against the interests of blue-collar America. This good bill repeals the trillions of dollars in Green New Deal credits that will put Americans out of work, places real work requirements on federal programs that encourage employment, prohibits unfair student loan giveaways, and lifts the bureaucratic stranglehold on American industry by passing the REINS Act. By comprehensively addressing the needs and wants of the American people, this framework goes further to address the tyranny flowing out of Washington than anything we’ve seen in years. It is a courageous first step toward a better and more prosperous America. There is a strong, conservative Republican Party all across America that is demanding action to put our nation back on the path to fiscal sanity.”
