Senator Schmitt Statement on Debt Ceiling Bill

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt released the following statement regarding the Fiscal Responsibility Act:

“For far too long, Washington has refused to run our government as families in Missouri do: balanced budgets, sound finances, and living within your means. Missourians didn’t send me here to support the status quo, they sent me here to fight for change. This is an important moment for our country, as we have the opportunity to rein in spending and enact much-needed structural reform — unfortunately the Fiscal Responsibility Act does neither. In its current form, I cannot support this bill and will vote against it. Runaway spending and a supercharged administrative state are grave threats to our country, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to reduce spending, enact structural reforms, and return power back to the people,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
