Statement “The fight over raising the debt ceiling, with its grave threats to moms and families, as well as to the economy, should not be happening. Just as Congress passed clean debt ceiling increases not once, not twice, but three times when President Trump held office, Congress should be passing a clean debt ceiling increase now.
