Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) was one of three members of the Wisconsin delegation in Washington to vote against the deal suspending the federal debt ceiling until 2025. 

Moore joined fellow U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, a Democrat from Dane County, in voting against the proposal, which also passed the U.S. Senate. 

U.S. Rep Tom Tiffany, a Republican from Northwest Wisconsin, also voted "no" on the bill. 

President Joe Biden's signature on the bill will ensure the U.S. Government avoids defaulting on its debt. 

But opposition to the President's compromise with U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California) lined up on both sides of the political aisle. 

Some Republicans are critical of the bill not doing enough to cut spending in exchange for suspension of the debt limit. Meanwhile, some Democrats said the debt ceiling suspension should not be tied to policy proposals in the bill, like stricter work requirements for some people receiving welfare benefits and cuts to some domestic spending programs. 

Moore also spoke about federal policies that right now are making an impact on her district in the city of Milwaukee. She said federal COVID-19 relief money is being used to remove lead pipes and laterals providing water to older homes. 

She's said she's authored several proposals she believes would improve Black maternal health. 

When it comes to politics, Moore said she's optimistic Democrats have gained a strong foothold in the typically purple state of Wisconsin. The Republican National Convention will come to Milwaukee in 2024. But Moore thinks the Democrats' message on issues like abortion and more funding for social programs will effectively counter the Republican nominee's pitch to voters here.

Moore also said the 2024 DNC, which will happen just south in Chicago, will also have high visibility around the Midwest and provides her party with a great chance to explain to voters why Democrats deserve another four years in control of the White House.
