Via AAN:

The Senate GOP voted on Thursday to speed up measures to raise the debt limit, a move which had been sought by Democrats.

As The Washington Examiner reports:

The move paves the way for the House and Senate next week to pass legislation increasing the debt ceiling ahead of a Dec. 15 deadline set by Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.

“This is a responsible path forward,” Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said ahead of the vote. “No brinkmanship, no default on the debt, no risk of another recession.”

The vote to fast-track the bill followed weeks of negotiations between Senate Democrats and Republicans who have refused to provide the votes needed to pass a long-term increase in the borrowing limit.

The GOP minority believes Democrats should pass a debt limit increase unilaterally because the party’s legislative agenda exceeds a staggering $5 trillion, most of it added directly to the deficit.

Former President Trump has recently expressed his displeasure with Republicans who sought to vote with Democrats to extend the debt ceiling.

Shame on them

The RINOS are more concerned about getting invited to the fancy cocktail parties than representing their constituents.
The 50 “Republican” senators need to vacate DC now and not return until January, 2023. Then there is no quorum in the Senate, and therefore, no Marxist bills get passed, no more Communist judicial appointments, no debt ceiling increase, and no packing the Supreme Court. Our children and grandchildren will benefit immensely.

Thanks to the dem0krats and the rinos we won’t risk having to face another recession. Just what will we face? Depression? Congress is maxing out the credit card and the money tree is already wilting because of neglect. Now what?

Sadly I have come to expect no better from B*tch McConnell. It is time to put the traitorous old coot out to pasture with the Squaw Squad.
