House Democrats Seek to End Federal Debt Limit

Democrat Rep. Bill Foster of Illinois introduced the End the Threat of Default Act that removes the $31.381 trillion limit on how much the Treasury can borrow. 42 Democrats co-sponsored the bill. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said the Biden administration’s lack of negotiation with Republicans on the matter is a “mistake.”

From The Daily Signal:

“The debt limit is an indispensable tool to safeguard the American people from reckless expansions of the size and scope of the federal government,” said Richard Stern, director of the Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget at The Heritage Foundation. “Repealing the debt limit would simply give a blank check, with your name at the bottom, to the woke left-wing establishment that is trying to dismantle our nation.”
