Spartz Says She'll Consider Resigning From Congress

October 5, 2023

Representative Victoria Spartz, a Republican from Indiana, has announced that she's ready to walk away if the rest of Congress doesn't get its act together.

She says she's going to strongly consider resigning from her position "if Congress does not create a debt commission by the end of this year."

"I’ve done many very difficult things being one woman standing many times with many very long hours and personal sacrifices, but there is a limitation to human capacity," Spartz said Monday.

She said that if other members of Congress aren't going to step up and do their jobs, then she doesn't really want to be a part of this racket, adding:

If Congress does not pass a debt commission this year to move the needle on the crushing national debt and inflation, at least at the next debt ceiling increase at the end of 2024, I will not continue sacrificing my children for this circus with a complete absence of leadership, vision, and spine.

"I cannot save this Republic alone," she concluded.
