Buffalo, NY – Erie County Executive Chris Collins said the federal government simply cannot continue to spend as it does.

During an appearance in South Buffalo, Collins was asked how the lack of a federal debt ceiling deal by August 2nd could affect the county's fiscal health. WBFO's Michael Mroziak has his response.
