Congressman Mike Turner (OH-03) released the following statement upon the House voting to disapprove President Obama's request for an increase to the nation's debt limit. Turner voted against the Budget Control Act in August of 2011 which set up the supercommittee and today's vote on disapproval:

"At over $15 trillion in counting, the President has once again asked for an increase to our nation's debt limit. The road of trillion dollar deficits is not a sustainable path for this country. There must be a point where we as Americans say 'no' to further burdening our children and grandchildren with this crushing debt. While this vote is largely symbolic due to the failed Budget Control Act, it must serve as a warning as the House begins the second session of the 112thCongress. It is my hope that the President also recognizes the importance of getting our fiscal house in order. The business of managing America's finances is not a partisan issue. Together we can roll back the tide of endless spending, and begin to place our country on a path to fiscal responsibility."
