U.S. Representative Kristi Noem says she doesn't want to see the country go in to default. She says it would negatively affect the markets, create uncertainty for the future, and wouldn't give the United States the stability it needs to continue to recover from the recession. Noem is optimistic all sides will find common ground by Tuesday.
"Well, Congress and the White House need to come to the table and grow up and get their job done," Noem says. "That's truly what we need to do. So, we need to get everybody agreeing on a plan that cuts our spending, reforms the way we spend our money in this country. That's truly what every single credit rating agency has told us."
Noem says Congress is coming so close to the deadline because for many weeks the process was held up with discussions by the President and the Senate that included raising taxes. Noem says she won't vote for anything that includes tax increases. She does support a plan put forth by Speaker of the House John Boehner that she says contains spending cuts and reforms, but no tax increases.
