Washington’s partisan bickering is standing in the way of a solution to the debt ceiling crisis. Every day that we delay, we draw closer to defaulting on the full faith and credit of the United States. Washington’s fecklessness and its cartoonish debate are putting our economy and the creditworthiness of the country at risk. We need to put ideology aside and reach an agreement to prevent a default on the national debt.
If 100 Coloradans were put in a room and asked to come up with a solution to our deficit challenges, I’m absolutely confident that they would get it done. In my town hall meetings Coloradans all across the state have told me they want a deficit reduction plan that materially addresses the debt and deficit crisis, ensures everyone is in it together and is bipartisan. It’s time Washington showed the same level of courage and common sense. But we need your voice.
That’s why I am asking you to sign a petition urging Washington to reach an agreement to prevent default on our nation’s debt. Please take the time to pass this along to your friends and family too.
It is time to act. Let’s make sure Washington hears Colorado’s voice loud and clear. It’s time to get our fiscal house in order and work together to secure the country’s economic future.
