Sen. Kelly Statement on Bipartisan Agreement to Avoid Default

Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly released the following statement on the bipartisan agreement to avoid a devastating default on the national debt. The agreement passed the House of Representatives last night.  

“Defaulting on the national debt should never be an option. It’s ridiculous that over and over again Washington comes to the brink of wrecking our economy, using the threat of killing countless jobs and driving up costs for families and seniors as a negotiating tactic,” said Senator Kelly. “This agreement is a compromise, which means each side didn’t get everything they want, but the most important part is that it avoids a devastating default. I’ll be voting to pass it and am hopeful that Republicans and Democrats in the Senate can come together quickly to get this done.”
