The debt ceiling Senator Mitch McConnell says Republicans are completely against raising it, Ted Cruz says he will block any attempt to do so. I know you are not down to negotiate. So how does he get this thing done.
The United States honors its obligations, we make these obligations when we vote budgets, the debt ceiling is not about somehow restricting American spinning sorry Republicans, you have already voted for all of that. and let's keep in mind during the time that Trump was president, he ran up the deficit by an additional $5 trillion. Now, part of this was pandemic related part of it was the tax cuts, Democrats went along with the pandemic, but what we always went along with is your raise the debt ceiling to honor America's financial promises to fail to do so would cost this country enormously around the globe, and that's something you can't reel back in, when you break promises like that. So my view on this is the Republicans know this. They're just playing politics, you know, they're, they're trolling us trying to see, they think they can get something out of it. And as Democrats, We're just not going to take the bait.
