Republicans May Try to Buy Time on Debt Limit

“Home Republicans are mulling an try to purchase time for additional negotiations on federal spending and deficits by passing a number of short-term suspensions of the statutory debt ceiling this summer season, together with probably lining up the deadline with the top of the fiscal 12 months Sept. 30,” Roll Name stories.

“Any such short-term measure would possible be ‘clear’ of any strings hooked up or particular spending cuts, and be designed as a suspension of the borrowing cap, which had been finished repeatedly over the previous decade till 2021, relatively than a greenback improve within the debt restrict. That will presumably make it simpler for Republicans to swallow voting for it after pledging to solely again a debt restrict improve if paired with spending cuts.”
