Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA) released a statement following the passage of the bill to raise the debt ceiling:

“We have an enduring responsibility to maintain the full faith and credit of the United States of America,” said McBath. “The hard-working men and women of this country have spent generations building an economy that sits at the center of our world, and we must not risk the sweat of American families or the trust of our allies abroad.”
