McConnell Says No Way Republicans Vote to Increase Debt Ceiling

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) just offered some advice to Democrats.

If they are expecting Republicans to help them raise the debt ceiling, they better think again.

To that point, McConnell is recommending they push it through in the upcoming reconciliation bill.

We Won’t Support It

During the Trump administration, the government was given until July 31, 2021, to continue to borrow money.

That deadline is fast approaching at the same time Democrats are trying to push through massive spending bills.

The extension did not come easy when Trump was in office, and now McConnell says it has no shot of being extended again if Democrats are relying on Republican support.

He stated, “I can’t imagine there will be a single Republican voting to raise the debt ceiling after what we’ve been experiencing.”

As Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) hinted earlier, the ONLY way Republican support would be given is with some major concessions…

Even then, it might be hard to scrub up the 10 votes that would be needed from the right side of the aisle.

Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) stated as much when he was asked about the debt ceiling being raised, stating, “I’d say it’s unlikely.”

If the debt ceiling is not raised, it will then be up to the Treasury Department to use “extraordinary measures” to keep the government solvent.

Keep in mind, all this is happening as Joe Biden’s economy is crumbling under his feet.

This has all the makings of an imminent crash, exactly what Joe Biden promised the American people would NOT happen on Tuesday afternoon.

  1. Well, let’s see if the republicans hold their ground or crumble again. I count 5 that might turncoat. but you never know what will happen in Washington. This country is in dire straits under a Biden leadership. 2022 and 2024 elections are the only thing that will save this country. Gotta these Dems out of leadership.

  2. Didn’t like that one did you CAPTCHA? Didn’t want to hear that Biden is spending the American people into oblivion. Well he is whether you want to publish it or not. The American people see through his greedy plans.

  3. The republicans need to get totally together and oppose EVERYTHING that biden and his handlers try to do! Almost as important is for the republicans to get rid of every rino in their party! 2022 and 2024 are critically important to the survival of our democracy and the American way of life! All democrats must go!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Biden should not be our commander and cheat.His whole family should be in prision

  5. “As Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) hinted earlier, the ONLY way Republican support would be given is with some major concessions…”

    Leave it up to good ole boy lindsey to get the caving in started….

  6. We are in huge triuble..I pray people get to the polls in 2022 and start the comeback momentum!
    The problem is ole biden will already have the country destroyed as we know it.

  7. There are some scary outcomes possible if the economy collapses. The worst is a restructuring of the country under the bankruptcy laws. This could mean a new constitution. With the Dems in power that’s a real bad thing. Pray that doesn’t happen.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Biden’s net approval rating – the gap between those who approve and disapprove – is at a new record low of -17.3%.

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.
