Speaker McCarthy continues to lead President Biden to the table for discussions to address the debt crisis and responsibly raise the debt ceiling, but President Biden should have engaged in these meetings months ago.
We are now 10 days out from a Biden Default on the national debt because for over 100 days President Biden refused to address the looming debt ceiling crisis, despite Speaker McCarthy’s repeated calls to negotiate. During that time, House Republicans were the only ones to act, passing the Limit, Save, Grow Act which responsibly raises the debt ceiling while addressing America’s debt crisis.
MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden’s inaction has put us in this position. If America defaults on our debt for the first time in our history, Biden will be responsible.
