Risch Rejects Debt Ceiling Increase

June 1, 2023 - June 2, 2023

If Idahoans live within their means, so can the federal government

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho) issued the following statement after voting against the debt ceiling increase:

“Idahoans live within their means by making responsible financial decisions for their families—the federal government should do the same,”  said Risch. “This debt ceiling increase puts a band-aid on a hemorrhage, and we will be in this same situation again and again until we address the federal government’s underlying spending problem.”
