DelBene on House Passage of Bipartisan Agreement to Avoid Federal Default

Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released the following statement.

“The bipartisan budget agreement that I supported today will protect American families and our economy from a devastating default on our nation’s bills. It also will shield our veterans, seniors, law enforcement, and schools from the worst of the extreme House Republican demands they issued while holding our economy hostage.

“This deal is far from perfect. Compromise means that no one gets everything they want in a negotiation. The worse outcome here was default.

“I thank President Biden and Leader Jeffries for their work to reach this deal and pass it through the House. The Senate must immediately take up this legislation and get it to the president’s desk.”
