WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement after voting against legislation to give the federal government unlimited borrowing authority until March 2015:
“As I have said repeatedly, one of the greatest threats to America’s future is runaway debt and continued borrowing. Under President Obama, our national debt has increased by nearly seven trillion dollars. I simply cannot support raising the debt limit yet again without even an effort to address our nation’s spending problem.”
The legislation passed the Senate 55 to 43.
