Rouzer Supports the Limit, Save, Grow Act to Restore Fiscal Sanity and Address Debt Limit Crisis

  • Washington, DC Office

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) released the following statement after voting in support of the Limit, Save, Grow Act:

“We must get Washington’s spending under control.  Today’s vote is a major milestone achieved.  By pairing sensible spending reforms that would result in $4.8 trillion in deficit reduction over ten years alongside legislation to address the debt limit, House Republicans' plan will protect American taxpayers, help ensure the longterm viability of the dollar, and strengthen the U.S. economy.  

It’s time for the U.S. Senate and President Biden to come to the table and negotiate a deal that responsibly increases the debt limit to avoid default of our payment obligations.”
