The problem with the Affordable Care Act and raising the debt limit, Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman says, can be reduced to simple math.
“The underlying problem here is overspending — it is not a partisan comment and it is not a ideological comment, it is a question of math,” Portman said Thursday during a media teleconference. “The government cannot continue to spend more than it takes in. The economy, in my view, is not going to pick up until we deal with this $17 trillion debt that is acting like a wet blanket on the economy.”
