Jan 29, 1981 The President's News Conference. Ronald Reagan announces that he and Sec. of the Interior David Regan have requested Congress to raise the debt ceiling, then blames government for spending beyond its means. "How do you do. I have a brief opening statement here, before I take your questions. Yesterday the Secretary of the Treasury, Donald Regan, sent to the Congress a request to raise the debt ceiling to 985 billion dollars. This represents a dramatic jump of 50 billion dollars over the previous debt ceiling. The administration took this action with great regret because it is clear that the massive deficits our government runs is one of the roost causes of our profound economic problems. And for too many years this process has come to easily for us. We've lived beyond our means and then financed our extravagance on the backs of the American people. The clear message I received in the election campaign is that we must gain control of this inflationary monster."
