Letter: An open letter to Rep. Michelle Fischbach

Mark and Mary Rice write, "This is a bipartisan issue. Along with the debt ceiling, it is also your responsibility to pass a CR to fund the federal budget until which time you can address the actual funding of government, which includes the salary paid to you and your staff."

Letter to the editor FSA

As my representative in Congress, you have a responsibility to fund those priorities you voted and passed under the Trump administration. This can only be done at this moment by raising the debt limit before Oct. 1, 2021. Failure to act responsibly indicates to us that you do not honor your oath to the Constitution of the US.

This is a bipartisan issue. Along with the debt ceiling, it is also your responsibility to pass a CR to fund the federal budget until which time you can address the actual funding of government, which includes the salary paid to you and your staff.

Mark and Mary Rice live in Moorhead.
