FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  Congressman Jim Banks (R-Indiana) says he intends to vote against the proposed debt limit deal in Washington, D.C.  As the country faces a June 5th deadline of possible default on the nation’s debt, Banks joined “Fort Wayne’s Morning News” Wednesday morning and says that the proposed raising of the debt ceiling has many flaws and that he and several other Republican lawmakers in D.C. plan to vote down the proposed deal later today.

“I can’t vote it, ” Banks stated, “I am not sure it’s big news, I have a consistent record of voting against raising the debt limit.”

Banks went on to say that he had hoped more efforts would have been made to address the national debt.

Finally some SANITY from an elected official!!! Aren’t you all sick and tired of being taken advantage of? Why should Hoosiers pay for the malfeasance of places like the NE states or Kalifornia? I need every cent of my income. I am opposed of sending 40% to DC to be used in ways I would not spend it myself. That should be the rule in DC. If they won’t spend their own money on a cause then do not force me to spend mine on your pet projects. Good on you Jim Banks!

Are you upset that he lied to the people??

Any chance you want to update this story to reflect that the Representative didn’t even show up to vote?

Didn’t even show up to represent his constituents. Rather go to a safe space and gratify to his base.

So isn’t this representatives job to show up and vote. As a Marine I know if your not early your late. How the hell does he not get his vote in in time? Where was he???
Makes me think he’s playing safe and playing both sides. I’ve always voted for him as fellow military service member. Did I make a mistake. Feel totally let down. He said he was voting no. NOT VOTING IS NOT THE SAME THING!!!

Lauren Boebert also missed the vote and she’s going through a divorce. Are she and Jimmy having an affair? Why were both absent from the vote but both barely missed the deadline. Were they together? What’s your explanation for not even bothering to show up to do your job, Jimmy?
