Pompeo Downplays Debt Ceiling Warnings

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2013

Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo says “this is the moment” to reduce the size of government.

The Republican from Wichita made the comments Monday as he tries to shore up support back home for taking a conservative hard-line against reopening government or raising the debt ceiling without spending cuts.

Speaking outside a Rotary Club, Pompeo says he would “absolutely not” vote to raise the debt ceiling without any strings attached.

He also claims there are not enough votes in the house to pass a clean continuing resolution to fund the government.

Pompeo says the fight isn’t about what Congress is going to do next week or next year. He says Republicans in the House of Representatives want to change the long-term trajectory of the nation’s financial condition.
