Representatives vote to delay hard budget choices
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Both Democrat Cheri Bustos and Republican Adam Kinzinger voted with the majority Wednesday to suspend the nation's debt limit for 4 months to give the U.S. government more time to resolve budget disputes.
U.S. Reps. Bustos, D-East Moline, and Kinzinger, R-Manteno, voted to allow the federal government to continue borrowing through the spring.
The current legislation would permit Treasury borrowing to exceed the limit of $16.4 trillion through May 18. The Senate will take up the measure next.
