The U.S. Congress faces a pair of approaching deadlines to fund the government and address the nation's $28.4 trillion debt ceiling that will require tricky maneuvering by President Joe Biden's Democrats over the next few weeks.
Sept. 30 is the deadline to continue funding federal agencies.
In late October or early November, the U.S. Treasury will run out of money to pay its obligations and will default.
Dems proposed a bill to continue the Govt and increase the debt limit.
Repubs says they will fillibuster.
1) What Dems should do is also play hardball by putting the bill on the Senate floor on Sept 30.
Let the Repubs filibuster and let all Americans see they are the ones that caused all non-essential govt employees go on furlough.
It worked for Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Americans blamed the Repubs for the govt shutdown.
and im shocked the Dems arent even considering this.
2) Repubs: Lets see how STUPID the avg American is.
Repubs say they want a debt limit increase but they're going to filibuster the Dem bill.
Can the American people see through the Repub double speak and blame the Repubs?
