Young Votes Against Raising Debt Ceiling

Alaska Representative Don Young voted last night with the rest of U.S. House Republicans against raising the debt ceiling.  But he’s skipping a meeting this morning between the House GOP and the President to talk over debt and the budget.  His staff did not give a reason.

Last night’s vote failed by a wide margin, 318 to 97.  82 Democrats joined with all members of the GOP in rejecting the President’s request to increase the allowable public debt.
