Welch: Debt Ceiling Debate Perilous for Both Sides

Democrats can neither control nor predict whether our Republican counterparts are really willing to play chicken with the American economy. But we can state clearly and unequivocally to the American people that our party takes the nation’s full faith and credit seriously. We should get behind a clean bill to raise the debt ceiling and allow our colleagues on the other side of the aisle to explain whether their notion of fiscal responsibility includes paying the bills.

Rep. Peter Welch (D) represents Vermont’s at-large district.
