Hoeven Statement After Opposing Democrats' Continuing Resolution with Debt Ceiling Increase

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today issued the following statement after the Senate voted on Democrats’ continuing resolution with a debt ceiling increase. 

“Democrats are working to try to pass their $3.5 trillion tax and spend bill using the reconciliation process. That would be bad for our country, which is why we are working to oppose it. It’s also why I oppose their proposal to suspend the debt ceiling as it would help them pass their tax and spending plan.”
