Concord - Representatives Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter sent a letter to President Obama yesterday supporting his plan to increase the debt limit without cutting wasteful government spending. Our national debt currently stands at over $16.7 trillion.
"It is disgraceful that Representatives Kuster and Shea-Porter are willing to saddle our country with more debt and refuse to work across the aisle to cut wasteful government spending," said New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Kuster and Shea-Porter would rather give Barack Obama a blank check and push our country to the brink of insolvency because they lack the courage required to get our fiscal house in order."
A recent poll conducted by Bloomberg News (9/26/13) shows that 61% of Americans reject the radical Obama-Kuster-Shea-Porter plan to raise the debt limit without controlling wasteful spending.
"Despite overwhelming opposition from their constituents, Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster are willing to get in line and blindly follow President Obama's reckless fiscal agenda. They are reminding Granite Staters that they have gone to Washington and lost touch with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values." said Horn.
