Top Democrat: We’re ‘Unwilling to Bargain’ on Debt Ceiling
Finally. Something we can agree with liberals on. We’re unwilling to discuss increasing the debt limit. Of course they just want to do away with it while we want to stop spending.
Check it out:
With the nation expected to hit the debt ceiling again sometime around October, Republicans have begun discussing what, if any, concessions they will accept in exchange for raising it.
But top Democratic House Ways and Means Committee member Rep. Sandy Levin (D-MI) says Democrats refuse to negotiate.
“Democrats are unwilling to bargain on the debt ceiling,” said Levin on Tuesday.
Levin’s comments may complicate President Barack Obama and Democrats’ strategy of painting Republicans as recalcitrant and unwilling to compromise.
Spending cuts and debt reduction, comprehensive tax reform, repealing Obamacare, and entitlement reform are among the items GOP lawmakers say they would consider as part of an agreement to raise the debt ceiling.
