July 19th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today praised the U.S House of Representatives for passing the "Cut, Cap, and Balance Act" and urged immediate action by the Senate to ensure passage:
"The House of Representatives has done its job. It has passed a debt ceiling increase that meets the short, medium and long term goals set out by financial institutions like Standard & Poor's to insure our nation's solvency and our Triple-A credit rating.
"Now, it is up to Harry Reid to start acting like an adult and put petty politics aside by passing the House bill through the Senate. 'Cut, Cap, and Balance' will save about $5.8 trillion over the next decade. Any plan from the Senate should save at least that much. Failure to act on the only responsible approach that has been proposed to solve our nation's debt crisis would be catastrophic to our nation's economic future."
