Wittman Votes for Commonsense Solution to the National Debt

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) released the following statement after voting in support of the Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023. Following the vote, Congressman Wittman stated:

“Washington Democrats’ reckless spending has had detrimental effects on our nation’s economy. Americans have experienced record high inflation and gas prices, and our national debt has reached an inarguably unsustainable level of over $31 trillion. It is incredibly irresponsible for Washington to continue to spend well above its means with no plan to restore balance and order in our nation’s fiscal house. The challenges from this kind of runaway spending with no sense of accountability not only impacts our nation today, but also future generations.

Washington has a spending problem, and the longer we wait to address it, the greater the risk to our national security, financial security, and the American taxpayer. The Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023 will help steer our nation back on the right track by limiting federal spending to Fiscal Year 2022 levels, allowing for 1% annual growth over the next decade, saving an estimated $4.8 trillion in taxpayer dollars over the next 10 years, growing our economy and workforce, and lifting the debt limit through March 2024 or by $1.5 trillion – whichever occurs sooner. With this bill determining our fiscal trajectory, House Republicans can proceed into the appropriations process where we will responsibly prioritize the government programs Americans need and deserve.

I have long advocated for returning transparency and accountability to Washington’s spending agenda. I’m proud to have voted for this commsense legislation to reverse the damaging consequences of the Biden Administration’s out-of-control spending spree. This bill provides the fiscally responsible framework Washington needs to begin seriously tackling our nation’s debt crisis, and I remain committed to fighting for policies that help American families and businesses succeed.”
