“Speaker Kevin McCarthy sent House Republican negotiators to the White House this afternoon for another round of debt-limit talks with the U.S. government just days from a catastrophic default,” Punchbowl News reports.
“Sources close to the talks tell us that the two sides haven’t made much progress. Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and Garret Graves (R-LA) – McCarthy’s chief negotiators – spoke to White House officials until late Wednesday night in a bid to break the impasse over spending levels and tightening work requirements for social safety-net programs.”
“The Biden administration requested that the Republicans meet on the White House’s campus – in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building – after meeting for days on Capitol Hill. But McHenry said no one should read too much into the venue change, saying neither side has budged.”Save to Favorites
