Moran to Oppose Debt Ceiling Increase

Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) “late last week sent a letter to President Obama announcing his opposition to raising the country’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, becoming the first official ‘no’ vote on an issue that’s likely to become the next flashpoint in the ongoing budget debate on Capitol Hill,” the Washington Post reports.

“Americans are looking for leadership in Washington to confront the problems of today, not push them off on future generations,” Moran, a freshman senator who previously served in the House for seven terms,wrote in the March 22 letter. “To date, you have provided little or no leadership on what I believe to be the most important issue facing our nation – our national debt. With no indication that your willingness to lead will change, I want to inform you I will vote ‘no’ on your request to raise the debt ceiling.”

The Treasury Department “estimates that the country will hit the debt ceiling sometime between mid-April and late May.”
