Molinaro, Stefanik, Ryan, and Tonko all vote to extend debt limit

Jun 01, 2023 12:54 pm

It does not happen often, but all four Hudson Valley Congressional representatives voted the same way on May 31, all voting for a bill to increase the United States' debt limit. Republicans Marc Molinaro and Elise Stefanik, and Democrats Pat Ryan and Paul Tonko, all voted for the bill. In past years, increasing the country's debt limit was routine, approved by both parties no matter who was in the majority. This year, though, Republicans have held the bill hostage, demanding spending cuts. President Joe Biden negotiated a settlement with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for this bill, which now heads to the Senate for approval.
