The Washington Republicans have made it clear that they are fiscally irresponsible and will use every ruthless tool in the book to plunge the economy into turmoil at any cost. The livelihoods of millions of Americans and the general state of our economy are at stake, and instead of taking responsibility for the debt added under Donald Trump, Senate Republicans are trying to eat and run and preventing Democrats from doing their jobs to do.
President Biden calls on Republicans for their shameful hypocrisy and ruthless obstructionism that could cost the country millions of jobs.
President Biden: “Not only are Republicans refusing to do their jobs, they are threatening to use their power to prevent us from doing our jobs and to save the economy from a catastrophic event.”
News week: “President Joe Biden is not mincing words as the country heads for economic crisis, with Republicans and Democrats at odds over raising the debt ceiling ahead of a possible default later this month. “If you don’t want to help save the country, go out of your way so that you don’t destroy it,” Biden said in a public address on Monday. ‘You have to stop playing Russian roulette with the American economy.’ ”
Republicans know that raising the debt ceiling is necessary because of the nearly $ 8 trillion in debt they amassed under President Trump.
HuffPost: “Republicans in Congress say they will vote against laws to increase the amount of money the federal government can borrow to fill the income-spending gap – even though they are partly responsible for the deficit.”
