CONGRESSWOMAN EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON RELEASES THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT ON THE BUDGET CONTROL ACT AGREEMENT

 

Washington, DC – (Monday, August 01, 2011)– “Today, I voted in support of the Budget Control Act Agreement in order to raise our nation’s debt limit and prevent our nation from falling into the disastrous economic abyss of default. The bill passed today is far from ideal and was a difficult choice, but I did not want to send our country into default and continue partisan gridlock that plagues both chambers of Congress at the expense of our economy. This bill represents the most reasonable agreement that has the support of the House, Senate, and the President.”
