Alan Nunnelee on Debt Limit

Air date 08/04/11

Earlier this week, both houses of Congress reached a deal with the White House to raise the nation's debt limit, avoiding default on any of the country's financial obligations. Both of Mississippi's Senators, Republicans Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, voted for the plan, as did Republican Representatives Gregg Harper and Steven Palazzo. Voting against the bill was Democrat Bennie Thompson.

Also in favor of the bill was Congressman Alan Nunnelee, who tells MPB's Ezra Wall why he considered the deal a fair compromise
