"The House MAGA majority's dangerous political brinksmanship shows all too clearly their willingness to hold our country hostage to advance their radical and harmful political agenda. This outrageous behavior must stop. Elections matter.
"Now that we've avoided default, we need to act to take the threat of default off the table moving forward. We cannot continue to allow the full faith and credit of the United States to regularly be taken hostage as a political weapon. Whether through legislative action, clarification of Section 4 of the 14th Amendment, or another path, eliminating the debt limit is critical in order to prevent these MAGA-manufactured crises moving forward. I'll continue working with my colleagues to do exactly that."
