McCarthy Accuses Biden Of Prioritizing Radical-Left Spending Over Avoiding Default

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) put Joe Biden on blast over his conduct surrounding negotiations on government spending, claiming he would rather have the United States default on its debt than move to cut massive government expenditures.

According to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, the U.S. will reach its debt limit as soon as June 1st. 

“President Biden doesn’t think there is a single dollar of savings to be found in the federal government’s budget,” McCarthy posted to Twitter Saturday evening. “He’d rather be the first president in history to default on the debt than to risk upsetting the radical socialists who are calling the shots for Democrats right now.”


Breitbart News reported that negotiations on the debt ceiling have been going on for almost two weeks, following months of refusal by Biden to make any kind of compromise with House Republicans. Now, the outlet reports that Biden became open to making a deal after McCarthy and GOP lawmakers passed the Limit, Save, Grow Act, which reportedly will extend the debt ceiling until at least early next year.  

An estimation by the Congressional Budget Office found that the bill will save $4.8 trillion in the next 10 years. 

Biden is now no longer working on negotiating, according to the House Speaker.

“The White House is moving backward in negotiations,” McCarthy wrote online. “Unfortunately, the socialist wing of the Democrat Party appears to be in control—especially with President Biden out of the country.”


This news comes just after Biden went on a trip to Hiroshima in order to attend the G-7 Summit, with Breitbart reporting that he has decided to shorten the trip.

A video posted to YouTube by the New York Post on Friday showed a seemingly confused Joe Biden arriving at the event. In the uploaded clip, he appears to almost trip down the stairs before being greeted by another world leader.

A poll conducted this month by YouGov found that the American public blames Biden more than Republicans for a compromise on the debt ceiling still not being reached, with 33% pinning the responsibility on the commander-in-chief vs the 27% that pointed towards the House GOP.
