 Head of Black Caucus urges Biden to address nation on debt ceiling
by Mike Lillis - 05/25/23 6:10 PM ET

The head of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is calling on President Biden to get more aggressive in the debt ceiling talks, suggesting the White House has remained too quiet throughout the debate at the expense of the Democrats’ negotiating position.

Democrats have grown increasingly irritated with the White House’s approach to the high-stakes talks, accusing Biden of lying low while Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and his deputies have made the media rounds to broadcast their perspectives to the world.

As the House left Washington on Thursday for the holiday recess, CBC Chairman Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) urged Biden to get more vocal in the discussion, starting with a high-profile address to the country.

“I would urge the president to use the power of the bully pulpit — of the presidency — and explain to the American people exactly what the options are, and how dire this moment is,” Horsford told reporters in the Capitol.
