McConnell secures GOP support for new debt strategy

LINK

quote:

Mitch McConnell believes he’s convinced a skeptical Senate Republican Conference to allow Democrats to more easily raise the debt ceiling, a critical development as the country faces a mid-December debt cliff.

The Senate minority leader spent Tuesday selling his members on a convoluted strategy that would require at least 10 Republicans to approve legislation that would later allow Senate Democrats to raise the debt ceiling by a simple majority vote. After a leadership meeting and a Senate GOP lunch, McConnell said he’d done enough work to clinch the deal in a vote expected on Thursday.


quote:

The legislation released by House leaders, the product of weeks of conversations between McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, would suspend filibuster rules for a debt ceiling increase for about a month. But it would require Democrats to raise the debt ceiling to a specific number rather than suspend it for a length of time, such as through the election.

Republicans can tout that as a key concession, while Democrats successfully rebuffed Republicans’ efforts to force them to use the more cumbersome budget reconciliation process to raise the debt ceiling. The debt increase would likely range from $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion to ensure Congress won't have to address the debt again before November midterms, according to several people familiar with the matter.



RINOs once again leading the way.

And yet some people think that if we just win the midterms and get people like McConnell back in charge everything will be better.

No they can't because they'll immediately behave as if it never happened and Republicans fought them the whole way.

this is why republicans are worse than democrats - at least democrats openly tell you they hate you and want to screw you in the ass, republicans just lie about it

McConnell is the latest poster child for why term limits are badly needed for all Federal elected officials.

I'd actually feel a tiny bit better if this was what it really was.

Mitch is not being "duped" though. It's the people who think he is, who are.

re: McConnell secures GOP support for new debt strategy
What’s the difference between raising it by a specific amount or for a specific time? Do they think democrats will be shamed or politically damaged by increasing the debt limit by $2 trillion or whatever is needed to get them through the midterms? In what reality is that any sort of a concession by democrats?

Notice how the collection of Dan Satterberg Republicans on this board (Penrod, Sentrius, Evolved Simian, RammerJammer, HHTM, IB Freeman, etc.) are avoiding this thread like they avoid any pro-American actions that go against their party.
