Senate Democrats Amy Klobuchar and Dick Durbin are urging President Biden to hold talks with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on the federal fiscal crisis, but they refuse to discuss possible spending cuts. This shows that Democrats care more about political posturing than finding real solutions to the crisis.
The ballooning federal deficit is a significant problem, and ignoring the need for spending cuts is irresponsible. Republicans are right to demand spending cuts as part of any deal to raise the debt ceiling. Democrats must stop prioritizing politics over solutions and work with Republicans to address the federal fiscal crisis.
