On Thursday, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced a deal with Senate Democrats to increase the debt limit by $480 billion until December 3, 2021.

Senate Leader Schumer claimed Democrats didn’t have enough time before the Oct. 18 deadline to do this on their own through “reconciliation,” a process which requires only 51 votes in the Senate.

But Democrats have known about the Oct. 18 deadline for months, so the tight deadline was 100% a problem of their own making.

McConnell has given Schumer SIX more weeks of additional runway. So no more excuses. Democrats should solve this debt crisis on their own, through reconciliation. Democrats are the ones trying to spend trillions of dollars, and so they should be the ones to own the debt.

December 3––is poised to be an important deadline for THREE reasons:

  • Deadline to pass a long term debt limit increase through reconciliation.
  • Deadline to pass legislation to continue funding the government, or the federal government will enter a shutdown on December 4.
  • Democrats are still working to pass their $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill and their $3.5 trillion tax, debt, and spending bill. The negotiations of these two bills will also affect the negotiations over the debt limit and the funding of the federal government.

In the end, all these issues are tied together by the common themes of “debt, taxes, and spending.”

  • Mitch McConnell and his butt-sniffer, John Thune, along with South Dakota's other RINO Senator, Mike Rounds, need to be run out of office. John Thune is up for re-election in 2022 and hopes that we have a very short memory. 

  • The socialist takeover shows that the left and RINOs suffer from the Latin term "Non Compos Mentis."  With all of the synonyms.

  • Mitch is about as relieable as a (jewish saying) fart in the gravy! (NOT RELIEABLE AT ALL)

  • Any republican that breaks rank and sides with the democrats should be tarred and feathered and remove from any committee assignment.  McConnell is too stupid to stay in his leadership position.  How many time does the dims screw him before he understands he can't trust those lying S of G. 

  • McConnell already caved. He’s giving the dems time to rally/bribe/ threaten, but not seeking supportive opposition from his own party.

  • McConnell certainly is action like a demockrat.  At this point I cannot believe a word he says.
