Speaking at a job fair in Atlanta, Maxine Waters voiced frustration with the debt ceiling outcome.
||We were basically held up in raising the debt ceiling, until they got all of those budget cuts they demanded. We didnít raise any revenue and they didnít close any tax loopholes. I believe the Democratic Party and the president of the United States should not have backed down. We should have made them walk the plank.||Ē|
