President Trump racked up ~ $8 trillion in debt. But now Republicans are threatening a default that would lead to a new recession, erase up to 6 million jobs, and cause a spike in unemployment. We will work raise the debt ceiling and avoid irreparable economic harm.
Asked Elizabeth Warren if Dems will just raise debt limit on their own after GOP blocks the stop-gap bill, and she fired back: "Are we hostage to Republicans who are threatening to blow up a part of the economic system because they want to do that for politics?" pic.twitter.com/LfhpzvXJpA

I continue to be amazed how many reporters and professors continue to write as if Republicans are acting in good faith on voting rights. Those of us actually in the fight to protect democracy do not have the luxury of self-delusion.

@ATT has brazenly abandoned its pledge to not make political donations that support the Republicans who voted to overturn the election on January 6
Their strategy is to hope no one notices.
Follow along if interested.
If the United States defaults on its debt, Moody's estimates 6 million jobs will be wiped out. Republicans refuse to vote to raise the debt ceiling. Remember this in 2022.
'No one would be spared': Debt default by Congressional Republicans would set off dire consequences https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/22/politics/debt-ceiling-warnings/index.html …
Republicans are the ones who racked up the enormous debt with their tax cuts to the rich for which the debt ceiling must now be raised. They should have to approve it too. 6 million American jobs are at stake.
Just want you to know all republicans voted to shut down the country. During a pandemic, while trying to rebuild. Why the FUCK would you EVER vote Republican.
What Republicans led by McConnell are doing is catastrophically reckless. https://twitter.com/PoliticsInsider/status/1440054496390828032 …pic.twitter.com/6nCK1e8NAj
Two years ago—70 Republicans & Democrats stood at an Iron Dome defense battery in Israel. For Repubs, it’s a reminder we will always stand with Israel. For Dems, it apparently was nothing more than a photo op. Yesterday, every one of them voted against funding for the Iron Dome. pic.twitter.com/rJ91q9lIVD
Republicans like to boast that they are “fiscally responsible” but they don’t even want to pay our nation’s bills.
“Time to take Republicans at their word & hold them accountable for their blatant efforts to undermine America’s democracy & economy. The media must do it. Voters must do it. And Democrats now have the perfect opening” to kill the filibuster
The GOP insists the Ds can raise the debt ceiling in a reconciliation package. Instead of letting Rs off the hook, Ds should change the filibuster rules. The filibuster is supposed to promote compromise and debate; Republicans are incapable of either https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/09/22/gop-renounces-democratic-governance-rationale-keep-filibuster-is-evaporating/?tid=ss_tw …
our ongoing self imposed implosion don’t see this all for what it is. Senate Republicans are prepared to cause great suffering to millions of people in this country on the bet that they have a propaganda network so powerful and far reaching that they will be able to convince
