WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. House have voted to avert a debt crisis, allowing the federal government to continue borrowing through May 18th.

However, Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann voted against the bill.

Bachmann released a statement this (Wednesday) afternoon saying, "giving the President four months of unlimited borrowing authority without a cap on spending is something I cannot support."  Bachmann went on to say, "Reckless borrowing and spending has left the U.S. with downgraded credit, impending galloping inflation, and a nearly "$16.5 trillion national debt."

The Senate is expected to pass the bill as well, which means it could go to the President by the end of this week.
