Washington, DC – United States Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released a statement following a meeting between Republican Senators and President Obama on the Administration’s request to raise the debt ceiling. 

“Senate Republicans and the President expressed a common goal of protecting economic growth by cutting spending.  Many of us in the room agree that any debt increase must be tied to large, comprehensive and lasting spending cuts to protect young Americans from deficits and debt.  

“Because there is a limit to how much debt the House would even consider, I believe we have to plan for multiple debt limit bills – giving us the chance to attach multiple anti-spending reforms to any new debt.”

The meeting with Senate Republicans comes one day after a meeting between the President and Senate Democrats as both the House and the Senate continue to prepare for the pending debate on debt limit legislation.
