Sen. Graham: No Debt Ceiling Increase Without Entitlement Reform
Today, Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) released a statement ripping President Obama’s newest attempt to raise the debt ceiling yet again:
Mr. President, I will not support increasing the debt limit until we address why we’re in debt. I will never vote to raise the debt ceiling unless we produce real structural reforms to save Medicare and Social Security from bankruptcy and prevent our country from becoming Greece. It is now time for you to demonstrate leadership and embrace big ideas in a bipartisan way. America is on an unsustainable path and to continue borrowing money without addressing our entitlement problems is irresponsible.
This is a strong stand from Graham on the debt ceiling – a battle that will no doubt be fought again in just a few weeks.
