Congressional Democrats are poised to vote on a $2.5 Trillion debt ceiling increase today, a measure that would increase the country's borrowing limits until 2023

"Democrats are putting taxpayers on the hook for another $2.5 TRILLION in debt. That’s $2.5 TRILLION on top of the nearly $30 TRILLION we already owe. Everyone should be disgusted by this.   It’s time for Congress to live within its means like families across America do every day," stated Florida Sen. Rick Scott.

Senate Republicans recently helped Democrats "fast track" the debt ceiling process to get us where we are today.

14 Republicans Senators voted alongside Democrats.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sens. John Thune, John Barrasso, and Joni Ernst, along with Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi; Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia; Susan Collins of Maine; Roy Blunt of Missouri; Thom Tillis of North Carolina; Lisa Murkowski of Alaska; Richard Burr of North Carolina; John Cornyn of Texas; Mitt Romney of Utah and Rob Portman of Ohio, all voted.
