Senator Murray: “We are not entrusting the full faith and credit of the United States to a risky, complex legislative process that requires the cooperation of Senate Republicans—many of whom are reliably uncooperative.”

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), a senior member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement after today’s vote to raise the debt limit.

“I’m glad Senator McConnell backed down from his completely unnecessary brinkmanship on paying our nation’s debts. I look forward to him doing the same thing in December, because as we have made abundantly clear, we are not entrusting the full faith and credit of the United States to a risky, complex legislative process that requires the cooperation of Senate Republicans—many of whom are reliably uncooperative.”
