Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) released the below statement following her vote against raising the debt ceiling.

“I promised the people of St. Charles, Jefferson, and St. Louis Counties that I would go to Washington to cut up the government's credit card and put a stop to wasteful federal government spending. What Congress voted on today did neither. Tying reckless spending policy to desperately needed emergency disaster relief sums up what people, myself included, hate about Washington politics. Today should have been about providing emergency resources for disaster relief and recovery, not playing beltway politics and punting on our national debt.”
