Republicans ‘Pressing Pause’ on Debt Limit Talks with Biden White House

Sean Moran19 May 202366

Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), who has been leading debt ceiling talks, said on Friday that Republicans would “pause” talks with the Biden White House on debt ceiling negotiations.

Graves said that Republicans would “press pause” on talks with the Biden White House, although it remains unclear how long they would like to pause negotiations.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tapped Graves to serve as one of the leading negotiators with the Biden White House, which includes White House counselor Steve Richetti and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Shalanda Young.

The Louisiana Republican accused the Biden White House of not negotiating in good faith. Reporters noted that, until now, Graves has been mostly tight-lipped about negotiations.

“It’s just unreasonable. Until people are willing to have reasonable conversations about how you can actually move forward and do the right thing, then we’re not going to sit here and talk to ourselves,” he explained.

The GOP really has the advantage right now and I hope that McCarthy doesn't fold.

Debt ceiling talks stall between White House, GOP: ‘Not productive’ says GOP negotiator

Talks between the White House and Republican lawmakers on how to increase the debt ceiling stalled on Friday, according to a key GOP negotiator who blamed Biden administration officials for failing to find a "reasonable" compromise.

..............."The House passed a strong bill, it has great savings in it. And it's responsible and it puts us on a path to bend the curve," he said......

McCarthy will collapse like a house of cards.

I say default on the debt and force Congress to do their job, starting with a mandatory balanced budget each year.

So, everyone keeps talking  about the debt ceiling and the fact that America is about to run out of money.
