GOP Continues Negotiating for Fiscal Sanity while Being Smeared as ‘Terrorists’

'I am not going to give up. We’re not going to default. We’re going to solve this problem... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) As President Joe Biden continued Friday to insist on a prolific spending spree that has the nation teetering on the brink of financial ruin, Democrats have smeared Republicans as “godless” and “terrorists” for pushing a modicum of fiscal restraint.

In response, Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., redoubled efforts this week to pass a spending plan that increases the debt ceiling while calling for reasonable spending cuts.

With those two dynamics working at cross odds, lawmakers headed into the holiday weekend without a debt ceiling agreement, escalating concerns that the government faces potential default, even as Biden has delayed serious negotiations for months.

“Let’s be honest about this. We have to spend less than we spent last year,” McCarthy said this week. “It is not my fault that the Democrats cannot give up on their spending.”

Instead of trimming a tax-and-spend bonanza that funds a far-leftist agenda, Democrats have taken to gaslighting and demonizing.

Rep. Dan Goldman, D-N.Y., claimed that Republicans were “extorting the American people by threatening to crater the economy to extract unreasonable demands.” His rhetoric was mild compared to far-leftist Squad Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., who accused Republicans of being “godless” for wanting to cut spending on her pet projects.

The godless extortion peddled by McCarthy increases the debt ceiling by $1.5 trillion and averts default with cuts minimal enough to have factions of his own party bordering on mutiny, which hasn’t stopped Democrats from defaming it as a terrorist act.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen had originally warned that the federal government could run out of funds to pay its bill as soon as June 1, a date she has since bumped to June 5.

Faced with the looming deadline, Squad-lite Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., declared that Biden should stop negotiating with Republicans, even if that meant default and shuttering the government.

“We don’t negotiate with terrorists globally, why are we going to negotiate with the economic terrorists here that are the Republican Party,” Bowman told CNN earlier this week.

The GOP’s terrorist speaker responded with a vow to keep negotiating in good faith, even as Democrats advocate for open rebellion.

“Let me tell the American public. I am not going to give up. We’re not going to default,” McCarthy said. “We’re going to solve this problem.”
