Jan 23, 2013
Washington DC – Earlier today, Representative Mark Takano (D-Riverside) voted “yes” on the latest proposal to raise the debt ceiling.
The proposal, which temporarily raises the debt ceiling limit, passed the House of Representatives 285 to 144.
After the vote, Rep. Takano commented on the bill saying, “While I am disappointed that this bill is a temporary fix, this extension is an important step in shoring up confidence amongst businesses and consumers to provide Congress an opportunity to work towards a larger, more balanced solution. My hope is that Congress will work towards a permanent end to the debt ceiling so we can avoid these self-inflicted crises once and for all.”
