PRESS RELEASE: Sen. Kohl reacts to debt ceiling compromise
Statement of U.S. Senator Herb Kohl
Debt Ceiling Compromise Legislation
August 1, 2011
"This plan is a compromise that will put us on the path to debt and deficit reduction. It is far better than what would have been the catastrophe of a default, which would have done enormous damage to every family and business in our nation. Once this is behind us, we need to return immediately to the most important job, getting our people back to work and getting the economy back on track."
