Washington, DC – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) today voted against H.R. 5305, a short-term spending bill that raises the debt limit, and issued the following statement: 

“Today I voted against providing Speaker Pelosi with a blank check to add trillions more in reckless spending to our national debt and raise taxes on hardworking New Yorkers. In past years, Republicans and Democrats came together to address the debt ceiling and fund the government. But under Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate, Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer have prioritized a bitterly partisan agenda that has completely shut Republicans out of the process. If Democrats want to unilaterally add trillions in wasteful spending to our Nation’s debt through a partisan process with no input, accountability, or transparency, then they bear the sole responsibility of addressing the consequences of their disastrous policies.”
