The Democrats said:
Republicans, led by Senator McConnell, seem intent on pushing America into the very first catastrophic default that they know would be a “disaster” that would drive our economy back into recession and harm every American . The debt ceiling needs to be suspended to pay the bills from existing programs, including those passed with Republican support after more than $ 8 trillion in new debt was added during the Trump administration. Republicans know their actions could seriously damage our economy – possibly including canceled or delayed social security exams and paying our military – but they are pushing us for the very first default because, as Senator McConnell said earlier this year, 100% percent of theirs The focus is on stopping the Biden administration.
President Biden’s plans are successful. They are popular with voters and are very damaging to Republican election hopes in 2022. Mitch McConnell tries to use the debt ceiling to ruin the economy and hurt President Biden.
What has changed since the Obama years is that the Democrats expect nothing less from McConnell than what he does, and they call on him for his un-American sabotage.
Mitch McConnell didn’t care about debt when Trump was president, and this next hike in the debt ceiling was caused by the reckless spending of Trump and McConnell.
Democrats are not playing games, and Mitch McConnell is not going to let go of his efforts to destroy the economy.
