The White House and House Republicans are at loggerheads over a proposed debt ceiling increase, with Republicans accused of putting the economy at risk with their “dangerous” spending cuts. Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich exposed White House press secretary to the cleaners on her false claims, proving just how incompetent she is.
House Republicans have put forward their 320-page debt ceiling proposal, which intends to raise the budget by $1.5 trillion by cutting federal spending by approximately $130 billion in federal spending this fiscal year. However, the White House has labeled the proposal, dubbed the “Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023,” a “reckless attempt to extract extreme concessions” and have vowed to veto the legislation.
Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich sparred with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the White House’s attacks on House Republicans’ debt ceiling proposal. Heinrich questioned whether the White House considered all the members who voted for the bill to be “dangerous MAGA Republican extremists” when in reality, the legislation aims to cut programs that are very important to American families such as law enforcement, veteran care and schools.
Karine Jean Piere believed she had dodged a bullet with such a good question but Jacqui Heinrich exposed the talking points. Heinrich even quoted Rhino Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who said there needs to be a conversation on the budget.
According to The Hill, the legislation includes provisions aiming to roll back the Biden administration’s actions on student loans, cut COVID funds and target the president’s aim to add more agents to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and “green giveaways.”
This debt ceiling proposal introduced by House Republicans is currently a point of contention between the White House and the Republican Party. While the Republicans aim to raise the budget by $1.5 trillion by cutting federal spending, the White House to vetoed the legislation, labeling it a “reckless attempt to extract extreme concessions.” With Biden bringing forth a bill of his own which we all know is riddled with nothing responsible, despite what the White House claims. Our proof is in his current economic disaster.
