House Speaker Kevin McCarthy expressed optimism Saturday about sealing a deal to raise the federal debt ceiling before the nation reaches its borrowing limit June 5.
“I feel closer to an agreement now than I did a long time before,” he told reporters as he arrived at the US Capitol Saturday morning, after a marathon negotiation session that ended at 2:30 am, hinting that the final language could be completed within hours.

The deal was always “done”, this is all Kabuki Theater.
McCarthy is not done caving yet. He’ll get some meaningless concession, but Dems will essentially get everything they want, including student debt giveaway.
Easy when you give into everything the other side wants.
McCarthy should have refused to do anything more than the bill the House already approved. The ball was in the Senate and instead of forcing them to take up the issue, he let Biden bully him into renegotiating with the House.
the backstabbing-GOP still has not released
the J6 tapes, except to help Pelosi (reconcile);
the backstabbing-GOP still supports the Biden corruption
and the DO”J” corruption; and has a decade of helping
any Nazi over the US Constitution and American People
because they support trafficking.
sad, very sad.
We are getting screwed. Again.
Since they’re not ready with the deal here, why hasn’t McCarthy taken up braces? The legislation rejecting ATF regulation of braces came out a committee quite some time ago, yet he hasn’t brought it to the floor for a vote. Why not?
Impossible. Trump endorsed McCarthy over everyone else. That must mean something, just like his vax billions, mail in ballots and bumpstock ban.
This is all part of some 4-D Trump plan isn’t it? /s
Yes, we always knew they would cave. They all know that $32 trillion cannot ever be repair so they just kick it down the road to somebody else’s watch.
The paper work was done in January by Kevin McCarthy and team and Biden and stooge crew has been sitting on their ass to play the it’s our way or no way dead deal.
Decoded: f**k the people we are in charge.
I’m mad that they didn’t bring back The House Un- American Activities Committie. That should have been the FIRST thing they did.
Yep - just waiting until the “deadline” and then saying he had no choice ...
