The U.S. Senate approved the compromise debt ceiling bill this morning and the President signed it into law shortly after. Oregon's Senators were split on it. Jeff Merkley told his fellow Senators the bill before them hurt families too much to win his approval. “So on top of this gathering storm, the Obama - Boehner bill is estimated it will cost an additional 100,000 to 300,000 additional jobs. It’s taking us in the wrong direction. Mr. President shouldn't we be creating jobs and not destroying jobs?” Merkley feels the bill does not help the middle class and instead creates additional burdens for them to bear. Oregon's other U.S. Senator, Ron Wyden didn't love the compromise bill either, but voted for it because defaulting on our debts was unthinkable.
