Tester Statement on Debt Ceiling Vote

U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement on his vote to avoid economic default by raising the debt ceiling:

“Defaulting on our debts is not an option because doing so would crash our economy, wipe out Montanans’ retirement accounts, and raise costs on our state’s families and small businesses at a time when folks are already struggling with rising costs. So while this is not the bill I would have drafted myself, Republicans and Democrats came together to craft this agreement that invests in health care for veterans and cuts the deficit.”
