The liberal agenda has once again led to disastrous consequences for the American people. Due to Biden and his administration’s reckless spending habits, the United States is on track to hit the national debt ceiling as early as this summer. Despite promising to work with Republicans on a solution, Biden has failed to follow through, putting the country’s fragile economy in grave danger.
McCarthy Blasts Biden's 'Extreme Approach' to the Debt Limit https://t.co/j6w6VwUH8i

In January, when newly elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy met with Biden at the White House, there was talk of establishing conditions for an increase in the debt limit. Biden even publicly declared plans to meet again with McCarthy during the National Prayer Breakfast, pledging to “treat each other with respect.” But, true to form, Biden has proven to be all talk and no action.
I'm incredibly concerned you are putting an already fragile economy in jeopardy by insisting upon your extreme position on the debt limit. It’s time to drop partisanship, roll up our sleeves, & find common ground on this urgent challenge. https://t.co/HUbg7DckWU pic.twitter.com/t4zIaZUAqI

“He has misled the whole Congress and the country… told the entire Congress that we're going to meet. At the Democratic retreat, he told the Democrats that they were planning meetings. He's never had one meeting” pic.twitter.com/kJ8XNGTGJD

It is now clear that the president has no interest in working with the other side. In a letter to Biden earlier this week, McCarthy expressed his concern that Biden’s refusal to negotiate could have catastrophic consequences for the nation. By holding steadfast to his extreme stance on government spending, Biden is putting the country’s economy at risk and jeopardizing its ability to meet its obligations.
Despite being warned of the dire ramifications of his inaction, Biden has continued to spend trillions of dollars frivolously, including through unaccountable executive fiat. He has displayed a complete disregard for the ballooning national debt and seems content to keep kicking the can down the road. This is unacceptable.
House Republicans are not demanding an overnight solution to America’s fiscal problems. However, we cannot continue to ignore the national debt crisis while the president spends uncontrollably. It is time to hold the Biden administration accountable for their reckless spending and demand real solutions to get our economy back on track.
