If you haven't heard, Joe canceled his debt-limit meeting today with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and other congressional leaders. The Wall Street Journal reports that "officials" blamed a scheduling conflict for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Uh-huh. OK. Sure.

Forbes Media chairman and former GOP presidential candidate Steve Forbes has a different take on why Joe is dragging his feet on debt-"ceiling" negotiations. He told FOX Business earlier this week:

"This is their whole scheme. They figure that, if they hold out, the American people will blame the Republicans. That's their plan. They want to divide the party... and say the oncoming recession [is] Republicans' fault."

The federal government has reached the limit on its taxpayer-funded "credit card." So, Joe and the Uni-party want to borrow even more money to avoid a government shutdown and a default on our nation's debt. Joe is insisting on a "clean" debt-limit bill with no spending cuts -- no strings attached. Apparently, he's willing to wait out McCarthy and the GOP to see who flinches first.

+ + Demand Senators Support McCarthy and H.R. 2811!

The House passed the "Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023" (H.R. 2811) two weeks ago. The bill raises the debt "ceiling" $1.5 TRILLION and reins in runaway government spending by defunding parts of Joe's "America Last" agenda. If passed, H.R. 2811 also would reduce the U.S. national debt by nearly $5 TRILLION over 10 years.

House Republicans' have passed a bill that increases the debt limit, reins in federal spending, and saves taxpayer dollars without a government shutdown or default. H.R. 2811 increases America's debt limit by $1.5 TRILLION for one year AND saves taxpayers nearly $5 TRILLION over 10 years.

Click here now to demand Senators support McCarthy's efforts to pass H.R. 2811 in the "Upper Chamber" and get it signed into law. Don't let Joe blame Republicans for his continued failure as "Commander-in-Chief." Thanks, in advance, for taking action today.

P.S. The fight over America's ability to borrow TRILLIONS more to pay its bills has been going on for months. Even though the federal government has reached its "debt ceiling" and risks a shutdown on or around June 1, Joe's dragging his feet negotiating with the GOP-controlled House. McCarthy gave him a bill that raises the nation's debt limit. The House did its job! Go here now to sign the "Stop The Spending Insanity!" national petition:
