 Why the White House is refusing to negotiate on the debt ceiling
by Alex Gangitano and Brett Samuels - 01/19/23 4:54 PM ET

The White House is refusing to negotiate with Republicans on raising the debt ceiling, a risky position that Democrats think is a political winner, but that also reflects their scars from previous fights.

Taking the position that you won’t negotiate will allow Republicans to argue that a refusal by the White House to discuss spending cuts amid a rising debt crisis means President Biden is not acting in the public’s interest.

But White House officials and Democrats believe they have much more leverage if they do not negotiate.

Here’s what’s behind the White House strategy.
