October 17, 2013 —  Here is the statement U.S. Representative Peter Visclosky (D-1) on the bipartisan compromise to open government and prevent default, from his office in Washington:

“I supported the budget agreement reached in the United State Senate in order to reopen the federal government and ensure that our financial obligations are met. For some years, Congress has failed in its responsibility to provide for the predictable and efficient delivery of services and protections important to all Americans. This failure has reduced the effectiveness of our government and distracted attention from strengthening our economy and creating good-paying jobs. Despite past disappointments, I am committed to working hard with all of my colleagues to use this temporary respite as a real opportunity to comprehensively address our national budget in a balanced fashion, and to achieve the reasoned and timely completion of all Fiscal Year 2014 funding measures with an emphasis on investing in our economy.”
