Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), who has been leading debt ceiling talks between the Congress and the White House, said on Friday that Republicans would “pause” talks with the Biden White House on debt ceiling negotiations.
Graves said that Republicans would “press pause” on talks with the Biden White House, although it remains unclear how long they will pause negotiations.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tapped Graves to serve as one of the leading negotiators with the Biden White House, which includes White House counselor Steve Richetti and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Shalanda Young.
The Louisiana Republican accused the Biden White House of not negotiating in good faith. Reporters noted that, until now, Graves has been mostly tight-lipped about negotiations.
“It’s just unreasonable. Until people are willing to have reasonable conversations about how you can actually move forward and do the right thing, then we’re not going to sit here and talk to ourselves,” he explained.
Here is video. Note his tense body language, and visible frustration with the meeting he just left:

Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) arrived at the Capitol after talks had broken down and said the White House was simply not willing to accept spending cuts at the levels Republicans are insisting upon.
“We’ve got to get movement by the White House, and we don’t have any movement yet. So, yeah, we’ve gotta pause,” McCarthy said.
“Yesterday I really felt we were at the location where I could see the path. The White House is just — look, we can’t be spending more money next year. We have to spend less than we spent the year before. It’s pretty easy.”

"FEED OUR SLAVES BUGS" but "WE MUST FIRST MAKE THEM HUNGRY." Let's "CUT OFF SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS FROM THOSE LIVING MONTH TO MONTH BY NOT RAISING THE DEBT CEILING."
Now, "OUR SLAVES SHALL LOVE EATING BUGS AS THEY BEGIN STARVING!"
Welcome to "THE NEW NORMAL."
If they default, then they will say that the only way forward is to impose a Central Bank Digital Currency, which will eventually have a Social Credit System. For your own protection obviously.
If it crashes then how will we survive without:
the FBI, ATF, Homeland security, EPA etc.
How about each state take care of it's own.
Let them shut down. They're not doing anything good for the American People.
