The federal government hit its debt ceiling this month. Experts warn of a government shutdown if the ceiling isn’t raised by June. House Republicans have made it clear they are willing to negotiate with Democrats on a deal. But Joe Biden refuses.
The White House is demanding Congress just blindly raise the debt ceiling. All so Joe can continue his reckless spending campaign, plunging future Americans into greater debt. But House Speaker McCarthy is not backing down. And he just dropped a hammer on old Joe.
From Daily Mail:
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy accused President Joe Biden of ‘playing politics’ with the U.S. debt limit on Tuesday amid a standoff over how to avoid a massive national default that could tank financial markets across the globe…
‘Our whole government is designed to have compromise, but here’s the leader of the free world, pounding on the table, being irresponsible, saying “No, no, no, just raise the limit. Make us spend more.” No, that’s not how adults act.’
Wow. Kevin McCarthy blasted Joe Biden over his refusal to negotiate with Republicans. McCarthy is unwilling to support a bill that raises the debt ceiling with no cuts to spending. But Biden says he will not sign a bill with spending cuts.
He can’t, in reality. He’s pledged too much money to special interest groups, big Democrat donors, and his buddies around the world. If there are spending cuts, his “build back better” socialist dream comes crashing down.
But Biden’s got no leverage in the fight. Republicans don’t have to raise the debt ceiling. McCarthy explained that compromise and negotiation are normal in our government. Heck, even Biden admitted that just ten years ago…
How interesting. When Biden needed Republicans to negotiate with him back in 2011, he was all for it. But now that he’s signing the bills, he won’t come to the table? It doesn’t work that way, Joe. Obama might have gotten away with being a dictator, sometimes. But those days are long gone.
Joe can’t just force his agenda. And his inability to cooperate with Republicans is revealing his shocking lack of leadership ability. And just a short two years before re-election. Lol.
