House GOP Leaders Want Biden to Negotiate on Raising Debt Ceiling
House G-O-P leaders want President Biden to meet with them to discuss raising the nation’s debt ceiling. House Majority Whip Tom Emmer of Minnesota says they’re pushing for changes in the way the government spends money:
“Republicans ran and won in 2022 on reigning in reckless federal spending. So we’re ready to negotiate.”
Emmer says he has consistently opposed every debt ceiling increase since he was elected to Congress. The White House says lawmakers should raise the debt limit without conditions.
