Speaker Pelosi has turned the tables on Mitch McConnell
Speaker Pelosi is going to use Mitch McConnell’s own ideas against him and expose his hypocrisy by voting him against his own proposal.
The idea behind the McConnell idea is good. The debt ceiling is very important for the US economy. It should not be political football in the hands of Congress.
Debt’s ceiling is an artificial construction. It is not in the constitution. Congress can choose to manage the US debt as it pleases unless it jeopardizes the full trust and credit of the United States.
Repeatedly, Democrats have overtaken McConnell on McNeil’s ceiling, and the best course of action for all would be to use the minority leader McConnell’s own ideas against him to hold McConnell hostage forever.
