McConnell Warns Democrats that GOP Senators Will Not Vote Again for Raising Debt Ceiling

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky informed US President Biden that he and other GOP Senators, will not cast their votes for raising the debt ceiling set for December if the Democrats face another crisis that is avoidable, Fox News informed.

McConnell sent a letter to Biden, saying that GOP senators provided sufficient votes as 11 Republicans voted for increasing the federal debt ceiling. However, he pointed out that this assistance would not be repeated if Democrats drift to another crisis that can be avoided.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Majority Leader, had 3 months in order to get a hold of one of his governing duties, McConnell continued.

McConnell argued that even that has proved to be as too much work.

The Senator also mentioned the rant after the vote for raising the debt ceiling occurred, saying that it once again proved the incompetence of Senator Schumer.

Senators, on Thursday, voted to adopt a short-term raise to the federal debt ceiling, putting an end to a weeks-long standoff and avoiding a default that might have caused a recession.

The 11 GOP senators that voted for the raise to continue are Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, John Thune, Minority Whip, Lisa Murkowski, John Cornyn, Shelley Moore Capito, Rob Portman, Susan Collins, John Barrasso, Mike Rounds, Richard Shelby, John Barrasso, and Roy Blunt.
