Democrats are pretending like the way Republicans are dealing with the debt ceiling should be treated as a literal crisis.
Which begs the question...
If they hate what Republicans are doing so much, why will Joe Biden not even try to get involved?
Republicans are ready to meet with Biden, but the old man seems to be simply refusing to do it.
"The president still hasn't talked to me," Kevin McCarthy said of recent negotiations. He was travelling in Israel at the time which made him say that "I'm a little like Netanyahu."
Biden won't speak with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu either.
The United States and Israel share a special relationship: we are the only two countries in history that were conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that we are all equal. I know the best days for Israel—and our unbreakable bond—are ahead of us. 🇺🇸🇮🇱 pic.twitter.com/Zq63vDzLHw

House Republicans surprised the White House last week by successfully passing a bill to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a default.
🚨 BREAKING 🚨 House Republicans just passed the only plan in Washington that
1. Lifts the debt ceiling
2. Stops wasteful spending and inflation
3. Puts America back on track
Now Democrats should do their job.
Tune in for my press conference soon https://t.co/vmn31INPH5
