Kansas Representatives Split on Debt Ceiling Plan

After last (THUR) night’s debt ceiling vote in U-S House of Representatives was postponed, some political watchers suggested it was because the Republican party is split on the issue. That divide is mirrored by two Kansas congressmen. The plan would raise the debt ceiling, but it also includes around a trillion dollars in spending cuts. Wichita Republican Mike Pompeo says he supports the bill, calling it is a step in the right direction.

First District Congressman Tim Huelskamp says the plan drafted by Speaker John Boehner doesn’t cut enough, and he doesn’t support the bill. Huelskamp explained why earlier this week in an interview with NPR.

Republican Representatives Kevin Yoder and Lynn Jenkins said earlier this week that they had not ruled out supporting the Boehner plan.
