Davis Supports Debt Ceiling Agreement

Story by WBGZ Radio

President Donald Trump, in what some called a surprise move last week, extended the U.S. debt limit to provide government funding until December 15. Central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis supports the debt ceiling being raised. He says it comes down to paying bills and also helping those in the south dealing with the devastation from hurricanes.

Davis wanted more than a three month extension, noting he does not like having a deadline. He called the agreement with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi the Presidents olive branch to the Democrats.
