Reaction Of Senator Patrick Leahy To House Passage Of The Boehner Debt Ceiling Package

“It is unfortunate that a partisan faction first manufactured this debt limit crisis and now continues to prevent a bipartisan solution.  Everyone knows that this lopsided House debt package has no chance of averting a debt catastrophe.

“Instead of taking days to play political games, Republicans and Democrats should come together in good faith for the good of the country.  Vermonters and the rest of the American people want this solved, they want it solved fairly, and they want it solved now.”
