Only Democrats voted to raise the debt limit and save our economy. Not a single Republican in the House voted to keep the federal government from defaulting on its debts. Never let them live this down.
President Trump racked up ~ $8 trillion in debt. But now Republicans are threatening a default that would lead to a new recession, erase up to 6 million jobs, and cause a spike in unemployment. We will work raise the debt ceiling and avoid irreparable economic harm.
Some seem to be confused so let me explain. About 30% of US trade is with Canada & Mexico. China accounts for another 13%. As for the UK, it is , the same as Taiwan, Vietnam, & India. So when some are confused why a trade deal with the UK isn’t a high priority, now you know.
By refusing to raise the debt limit, @HouseGOP & @SenateGOP are refusing to vote for: ❌Paying our troops ❌Social Security & Medicare payments ❌Child Tax Credit payments ❌Protecting 6 million jobs They’re holding hostage our troops, our seniors, our kids, and our livelihoods.
It would be one thing for Republicans to vote no on debt ceiling, driving the economy into oblivion. But they are going to BLOCK THE MOTION TO PROCEED to even get to a vote. They are blocking us from saving the economy, using, yes, you guessed correctly, the filibuster.
