Hoyer Statement on Speaker Boehner's 
Partisan Default Bill

WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on Speaker Boehner's partisan Default Bill:

"This evening, in a partisan vote, the House passed Speaker Boehner's short-term plan on the debt limit. Speaker Boehner's plan, which will return our nation to the edge of a default crisis in a matter of months, is a recipe for damaging, job-destroying economic uncertainty--which, in the wake of today's disappointing report on economic growth, is clearly the last thing America needs. In addition, in order to win the support of the most extreme members of his own party, Speaker Boehner added a provision that would permanently write Republicans' narrow ideological priorities into the Constitution itself. This bill is no solution to this Republican-created crisis. It is clear that it will not pass the Senate; nor would President Obama sign it.

"The solution, in fact, is clear: a balanced plan to control our deficit and pay our bills. Such a plan would have the overwhelming support of the American people--and it could win the bipartisan support necessary to pass the House and Senate, and to become law. Now that the House has wasted several days on the work of passing this empty, political gesture, it is time for serious action to prevent a disastrous default."
