House GOP Debt Relief Plan All Wrong for Moms, Country
“While Republicans in the House congratulate themselves for passing the Limit, Save, Grow Act, moms and families across America shudder to think about the hardship and trauma this legislation would cause, should it ever become law. America’s moms are counting on Congress to act responsibly by passing a clean debt ceiling increase that does not cut SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, early childhood education, and other programs families rely on, does not create insurmountable barriers that prevent children and families from accessing the supports they need, and does not prevent our government from addressing the student debt crisis.
“Cuts to vital services have never been the price we pay to avoid catastrophic economic default, and it shouldn’t be the price we pay now. The bill the House GOP passed today would put the health, safety, and well-being of children and families – and our economy – at real risk. It is all wrong for moms and the country. Moms want the U.S. Senate to pass the clean debt ceiling increase the country needs – and for the U.S. House to fall quickly into line.”
