Cities tell Congress: Raise Debt Ceiling Now!

The National League of Cities wants Congress to “stop stalling” and “raise the debt ceiling now!” They believe raising the debt ceiling… again… is acting responsibly! No thought is given to cutting spending, they just want to continue holding their hands out for more, more, more! Is there any wonder our National Debt is out of control?

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — National League of Cities (NLC) President Chris Coleman, Mayor of Saint Paul, Minn. today released this statement calling on Congress to raise the U.S. debt ceiling limit:

“As the federal government approaches its debt ceiling, cities call on Congress and the Administration to act responsibly and avoid another fiscal showdown. Let’s not even get close to defaulting on our debt obligations. Cities call on members of both parties to work together to raise the debt ceiling and protect our nation’s economy from the financial disaster that would result following a default.

“As the bipartisan budget act and ‘Farm Bill’ showed, Congress is capable of compromise and working together to get the job done. Rather than squander the legislative time remaining in this session, cities urge Congress to continue moving beyond the era of manufactured crises and instead prioritize investments in cities and their residents that are proven to stimulate economic growth and innovation nationwide. Following years of uncertainty due to the absence of federal leadership during Great Recession, cities need a federal partner that will step up to the plate and provide a foundation for a generation of growth.”

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
