Heritage Action Statement on Debt Limit

Washington — Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Heritage Action is strongly opposed to any long-term debt limit increase that does not contain the policies that get our nation on a path to balance. 

“At this point, John Boehner is essentially a rogue agent who should not be negotiating a $1.5 trillion debt limit increase.  As such, Heritage Action would be open to short-term action that will empower a new speaker to fight for the reforms contained in the congressional budget during the first quarter of 2016.”
