Ryan Signals Another Debt Ceiling Fight

Paul Ryan (R-WI) said that Republicans "would not raise the debt ceiling next year without some sort of concessions from Democrats, saying lawmakers were still crafting their strategy," the Wall Street Journal reports.

Said Ryan: "We, as a caucus, along with our Senate counterparts, are going to meet and discuss what it is we want to get out of the debt limit. We don't want 'nothing' out of the debt limit. We're going to decide what it is we can accomplish out of this debt limit fight."

"The White House has said it will no longer negotiate with Republicans on conditions for raising the debt limit, but many Republicans have said they will only vote to raise the debt ceiling in exchange for budget changes like spending cuts."
