Washington – Business Roundtable CEO Joshua Bolten today released the following statement after the House approved the Limit, Save, Grow Act:
“Today’s vote in the House is an important step toward preventing a default and preserving the full faith and credit of the United States. Business Roundtable is hopeful this action will jump-start bipartisan negotiations on raising the debt ceiling as soon as possible.
“With Democrats and Republicans agreeing default is not an option, now is the time for them to come together to find a solution that can pass the House and Senate. We urge both sides to act swiftly to secure a bipartisan agreement that takes default off the table and begins the hard work of dealing with our deficits and debt.”
