Mr. HERGER. Madam Speaker, President Obama and congressional Democrats have maxed out the national credit card with reckless spending, and they're back for more.

The American people are tired of overspending and tired of policies that have done nothing to lift us out of this economic downturn. Democrats rammed through a so-called stimulus that left us asking: Where are the jobs? Now congressional Democrats are asking for more money that they will turn around later this afternoon and spend on another stimulus bill that spends even more on failed policies.

Madam Speaker, it's time for Congress to say ``no'' to endless debt that is an albatross around the neck of our Nation's economy and future generations. Vote ``no'' on this increased debt limit.
