Kevin McCarthy: ‘We Have to Negotiate Over the Debt’; Biden Is ‘Playing with the Financial Markets of America by Saying He Wouldn’t Negotiate’

‘Our whole government is designed to have compromise’

EXCERPT:

MCCARTHY: “We have to negotiate over the debt. Our whole government is designed to have compromise. Republicans control the House, Democrats have a small majority in the Senate and he is the president. He is playing with the financial markets of America by saying he wouldn’t negotiate. We’ve hit the limit. So now we have until June or July. Let’s start communicating now and find where we can eliminate the waste, find the common places we get together, and have a responsible debt ceiling that’s lifted but puts us on a path to make us financially stronger. And you’re right, Larry, the latest poll by Rasmussen, only 24 percent of America agrees with the President’s position that he is not going to negotiate at all. Does he not believe that there is not one dollar that you can find to eliminate waste in government? I mean, they just passed a $1.7 trillion bill that two — two senators wrote who are no longer here at the end of the year. The Democrats have never passed a budget.”
