Graves on Debt

Northwest Missouri congressman Sam Graves voted for the House's version of the debt bill, saying it's a change in conversation for Washington.

Graves said it met his criteria of cutting more in spending than the debt ceiling is raised. Graves adds Missourians should be assured this fall's bill-established commission on capital hill will be forced to work together to identify another one and a half trillion dollars in spending.
