First, Congress needs to pass a short-term spending bill by Thursday or the federal government will shut down. And Congress needs to raise the debt ceiling or the nation will default on its loans next month. But Keller says he’s opposed.

“What I support is good, fiscal, conservative government that doesn’t lump a lot of debt onto our children and grandchildren,” Rep. Keller said.

Congressional Democrats also plan to vote on their $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill this week, which has no support from Republicans.
