Biden Makes Ridiculous Demand, McCarthy’s Response is EPIC!

House Republicans are on the brink of a critical budget battle with the Democratic-led Senate and Joe Biden. At stake is the debt ceiling, which sets the maximum amount of money that the federal government can borrow.

Republicans have asserted that any boost to the debt limit should be accompanied by spending cuts in order to diminish future deficits. However, Democrats argued that this is simply a ploy by Republicans to use the government as leverage in their negotiations.

In an informal press conference held outside of Capitol Hill, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy remarked that Biden’s refusal to even negotiate conditions for raising the debt ceiling was “arrogant,” noting how discretionary spending had increased by 30% within four years under Democratic control, compared to no increase during Republicans’ eight-year rule.

Biden has insisted on having a “clean” debt ceiling raise without any strings attached. Meanwhile, McCarthy has expressed his desire to work with Biden and strive to reduce spending before it leads to a potential government shutdown. As Congress proceeds in its deliberations over this issue, members of both parties must consider their long-term fiscal responsibility and aim for an agreement that benefits all Americans through job creation and economic growth.

The Epoch Times reported,

The speaker said Biden’s refusal to discuss anything other than a “clean” increase in the debt ceiling, which limits federal borrowing, is “a sign of arrogance that he would say he wouldn’t even discuss it.”

“I mean think about what the Democrats have done just in four years, they’ve increased discretionary spending by 30 percent. When Republicans were in control for eight years, discretionary spending didn’t go up one dollar,” McCarthy said.

Noting that the national debt is nearly $32 trillion, McCarthy asked, “Why would you do this to any future generation in anything we do? Why wouldn’t you sit down and talk, especially with something as serious as a debt limit; why would you want to wait until the end? Who wants to put the nation through some type of threat at the last minute with the debt ceiling? Nobody wants to do that.”

The upcoming budget dispute is significant for Americans as it could result in a government shutdown if not handled appropriately. Republicans argue that spending cuts are essential, while Democrats claim that these actions are driven by political bias rather than financial responsibility. It is uncertain how the situation will be resolved or if it will continue until a new crisis emerges in the near future.

The mental midgets of the Demonrat party do not intend to slow spending until the country is in bankruptcy to push their fake WEF/NWO agenda of absolute control for which they actually belong in prison.

Kjelstad

Hey Don. Who do you think spent the money we have to borrow now? 1/4 of our national debt accrued during one failed president’s four year term.

Eff You

LOL

Steven

Actually, the deficits in TWO years under the current President have exceeded the total deficits from the last 3 full terms under Republicans.

Orangered

IMPEACH the SOB–then turn around and impeach Harris–get this country back to where it was before the Demons took control.

John Grychak

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING ABOUT AN “IMMEDIATE” TERMINATION OF JOE BIDEN AND KOMOLA HARRIS? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE GOP? THERE’S MORE THAN ENOUGH, DEROGATORY INO ON BOTH, TO INDICT BOTH. WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING ABOUT TAKING THEM OUT, AND THE REST OF THE ANTI-AMERICAN REGIME WITHIN?

DanC

Because there are enough deep state rinos that would prevent that type of action. We need to vote both democrats and rinos out of office.

Pat K Dietrich

Absolutly ASAP !

Doug103

Voting out Democrats and rino’s will never happen until we get legitimate elections. Dems cheat. Get rid of the machines, do hand counts and same day voting. The only way to bring legitimacy to the vote, then we will have a true republic…

foxy

Because the DemoRats of the Democratic Socialist/Communist Party says that Hidin Biden and Camel Toes are above the LAW 🤗🤗🤗🤗 !!

RRRoger

The RINO’s are bought and paid for. They belong to the same clubs as the Democrats.

Kevin

Think. WHITE HATS

John Grychak

I HOPE THAT KEVIN MCCARTHY WILL STICK TO HIS GUNS, NO MORE RECKLESS SPENDING BY JOE BIDEN AND HIS MOTELY REGIME OF ANTI-AMERICANS.

bob

Shut the Govt down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug103

Yes, shut the government down, bring the American nightmare to an end…

Ted

It shouldn’t have to take this long….But When there is nothing left, to support even having a government, they think they will just go home and live off of what they stole from us in years past. That’s when 19th century justice will kick in and there will be a lot of former politicians decorating tree limbs all around the country….

Kevin

ABSOLUTELY

Dennis

The Federal Goverment should post on line to the American people exactly the amount of money dedicated for each line-item in a bill. We The People would then see how much money is wasted on pork. Each bill should be presented to the legislature one full week before being voted on.

bill

Hey you hard working taxpayers nothing will happen. The debit ceiling will be raise, McCarthy just like the past will fold. The republicans do not have the guts to stand up for the taxpayer and say enough is enough that they are not going to put more debit on the shoulders of all citizens. I think what will happen the democrates will agree to cuts that will happen years down the road and the debit ceiling will be increased. How about saying there will not be any increase and spending cuts need to be made. Stop all foreign aid, cut funding to the United Nations, eliminate the department of education, cut house and senate salaries until we have a balance budget and go to a flat tax and do away with the irs. The average citizen can not just to continue spending and adding to their debit and the government needs to do the same. How about closing the border and stop illegals from come into the usa at current of 5.1 million since Biden has been in office and the tax payer will support them for their lives. I ask everyone who reads this post to go to: usdegtclock.org aND YOU WILL SHOCKED TO SEE THE TAX BURDEN PUT ON THE SHOULDERS OF EVERY TAX PAYER AND EVERY CITIZEN. bUT MAKE SURE YOU ARE SITTING DOWN BECAUSE YOU WILL SHOCKED TO SEE BAD THE FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE USA IS..

Jennifer L Petrey

Oh how I WISH The repubs had the guts for this..all of this would turn our country around real quick..

Kevin

ALREADY KNOW Bill

James Mallett

You’re right Bill. Politicians will do whatever is in THEIR best interest, financially! They just keep playing the game and getting filthy rich off our pain and suffering! This whole government needs to go. Set term limits of 12 years for the House and Senate. PERIOD!
Carreer politicians will have to find other ways to get rich. Maybe work a job, like the rest of us!!

CAH

I really want to know how do so many past and current politicans (e.g.,Obama,Biden and others) become so rich while in offic or after they leave office. Influence peddling?

Robert

When the president of the US states that having an ar 15 is not enough to win that you need an f15 and an a bomb. He should have been impeached and indicted at that time. He’s nothing more than a socialist and puppet for ccp

CPO Bill

They only know how to spend and EFF the taxpayers!

Kevin

BELIEVE IT BILL

RRRoger

Simple
DeFund or greatly reduce the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security.
Reduce waste or eliminate all other programs
Fire all the Lobbyist
DeFund all the Socialist programs, but
Leave Social Security and Medicare alone.
Put congress on Social Security, Medicare, term limits, etc.

Rick Beatty

You forgot the ATFE, get all illegals off Social Security, Medicare, and out of the country.

Jesse

Anything done should be put in. WRITING and done before budging a bit on the Debt ceiling. Democraps LIE and NEVER do as they promise. That is why despite promising that the Obozo Stimulus Package would be paid for in 10 years not a single penny has been paid on it to this day.

Howard K Rosenstein

Please, stop with this government shutdown crap. I say shut it down and save trillions. In simpler terms, non-discretionary expenses are those that are necessary to be incurred, such as utilities, groceries, mortgage, taxes, etc. Discretionary expenses are those that one can do without and are beyond the needs of a person. SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND MEDICAID ARE DISCRETIONARY SPENDING AND WOULD CONTINUE TO BE PAID IN A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. I would love to see the Biden regime, Congress and the Judiciary listed under discretionary spending. I would love to see their salaries stopped in a shut down. As far as the debt ceiling is concerned, I demand it be lowered and that we cut trillions $ of waste from our useless government. So, SHUT IT DOWN!!! I don’t think normal citizens would even notice or care.

Fred Doe

The Continental Army ended tens of thousands of redcoats for a lot less.

Tim Kuehl

To put a trillion dollars in perspective. If I handed you, which I wouldn’t, $1 dollar every second until I gave you one trillion dollars it would take about 31,000,000 years. Do the math if you don’t believe me. Divide the trillion by 365 days/yr, then 24 hr/day, then 60 minutes/hr and finally 60 seconds/minute. Now multiply that by 31. It would take 1 million years to pay back that amount at $1/second.

Steven

The ENTIRE reason to have a debt ceiling is to force consideration of spending cuts.
If Biden receives a bill to increase the ceiling with spending cuts attached, his options are to sign it, or veto it. If he chooses the veto it, HE is personally responsible for the debt limit not being increased and HE is holding government financing hostage.
