WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), today released the following statement on the Supercommittee’s announcement that it was unable to reach agreement on a proposal to cut the nation’s debt by at least $1.2 trillion:

“With an unprecedented $15 trillion debt, the American people deserve answers to how we will rein in reckless spending, maintain the viability of programs that are important for future generations and put our economy back on track. We had hoped the committee would find common ground to provide solid solutions.  Unfortunately, all members could agree on was that they couldn’t agree.  This is unacceptable. The stakes are too high to walk away from this discussion so I will be working with my colleagues to provide us with financially sound footing that Arkansans and all Americans are counting on.”
