Democrats Vote Again to Suspend Debt Ceiling, Write Blank Check for their Partisan Agenda

October 12, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05) issued the following statement after Democrats voted to suspend our nation’s debt ceiling for the third time over the past month, writing a blank check for their multi-trillion dollar partisan agenda:

“Democrats have embarked on a massive and unprecedented deficit spending spree since taking control of Congress and the White House. Without a single Republican vote they passed a $1.9 trillion ‘COVID relief’ bill back in March, and they have a combined $5.5 trillion infrastructure and budget reconciliation package in the pipeline as well. It’s unfortunate that Democrats want American taxpayers to give them a blank check to fund President Biden and Speaker Pelosi’s socialist agenda. I certainly wont stand for this or aid them in creating trillions of dollars in new debt,” said Congressman Fitzgerald. 


Congressman Scott Fitzgerald was sworn in to the 117th Congress on January 3, 2021 and is proud to represent Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
