Sen. Whitehouse: “It is a straight line from Republicans’ manufactured debt crisis to Fitch’s downgrade”
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement on the recent decision by Fitch Ratings.
“It is a straight line from Republicans’ manufactured debt crisis to Fitch’s downgrade. Years of Republicans’ debt limit brinkmanship, showering billionaires with tax giveaways, and campaigning for economic default have come with a heavy price. Once again, Americans are being stuck with the bill for MAGA Republicans’ economic recklessness.”
“They played dangerous games with the U.S. economy, and this is their result. We must end the debt limit default threat.”
