On Thursday’s broadcast of Bloomberg’s “Balance of Power,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) acknowledged that we shouldn’t be within the present disaster over elevating the debt ceiling to start with and “Democrats from the beginning have stood ready to end it” as a result of they pushed for and have put ahead a discharge petition for the clear debt ceiling enhance with none fiscal adjustments that President Joe Biden and Democrats wished on the outset.
Moulton mentioned, “We should not be in this crisis to begin with, but Democrats from the beginning have stood ready to end it. That’s why we raised the debt ceiling three times under President Trump. We didn’t like Trump. We didn’t like his policies. We didn’t like his massive tax cut that’s contributed substantially to the deficit that we have today, but we raised the debt ceiling because that’s the right thing to do for the country. So, I signed a discharge petition with every other House Democrat that would put forward a clean raise of the debt ceiling bill. We just need five Republicans to sign on that. That could happen tonight, and I’d be on the first plane back to Washington.”
He added that Republicans are “why we’re waiting until the very last minute to get it done.”
