Inouye, Akaka Statements On Debt Negotiations


U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye issued the following statement after a meeting with Senate leaders Saturday afternoon:
“At this moment, we have a plan before us that will stave off the certain financial disaster that will occur if the United States defaults on its financial obligations. We have already scared off significant investment in our country and our failure to reach an agreement at a time when millions of Americans are struggling to find work is irresponsible. In my nearly five decades as a member of this body, I have never seen such reckless behavior. Here we are, days before our country is unable to make good on its debts, and we are still talking and talking about revisions and amendments and vote schedules . . . . .
