House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is undeterred by complaints from the conservative flank of his conference regarding the debt limit negotiations with the White House. He acknowledges that any deal has to pass the Democratic-majority Senate and be signed by President Biden. McCarthy feels that “progress” was made in the talks on the prior night.
A letter from the House Freedom Caucus called on McCarthy to “hold the line” against the White House and not compromise on any points laid out in the debt limit bill. The bill would raise the debt limit by $1.5 trillion or through March 2024 and couple that with a $150 billion spending cut from this year to the next, tighter work requirements for federal benefits and a rollback of key presidential policies. The Freedom Caucus asked McCarthy to consider adding border security provisions, which is highly unlikely, to be accepted by the Democrats.
“You’re talking to people who don’t know what’s in the deal. So I’m not concerned about anybody making any comments right now about what they think is in or not in,” McCarthy said when asked about dissent within his conference. McCarthy gave credit to his party for passing the Limit, Save, Grow Act, but admits that it may not be the final deal. He acknowledges that negotiations with the White House on the debt ceiling are continuing but still far apart.

The bill aims to curtail spending and bring back wasteful money. Also, McCarthy promises to brief the conference once there is an agreement on the bill. McCarthy’s attempt to add border security provisions in the final bill met with skepticism from the Democrats.
