Udall: Boehner Bill Never Viable Option

July 29, 2011
  • WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) issued the following statement tonight following his vote in opposition of Speaker Boehner's short-term debt ceiling increase:

    "We're just days away from an unprecedented default on the nation's debt and the House once again sent us a bill that never stood a chance of passing the Senate. Not only is the Boehner Plan faulty in substance, it only forces us back to this standoff in a few months. His bill was never a viable option because experts like Moody's and Standard & Poor's have warned that a short-term extension could still cripple our economy and credit rating. This game of chicken has gone on long enough and it's time for the House to help us put something realistic on the table and get it passed so we can refocus on creating jobs and rebuilding the economy."
