Today on CNN, Candy Crowley said that the House was the "most difficult place" to get a debt limit increase passed. One problem – the facts say otherwise.
To date, the House has been the only body to pass a measure (on a bipartisan basis) to increase the debt ceiling AND enact real reforms to manage down our debt and change Washington.
The Cut, Cap and Balance bill passed with bipartisan support in the House, only to have Senator Reid, Senator Schumer and the rest of the Senate Democrats slam the door on it, without offering a plan of their own. The President despite saying on Friday that he’d “release the paper” detailing his plan, has failed to do so. The fact is clear: Neither Senate Democrats nor President Obama have ever put forward a detailed plan to raise the debt limit while getting the nation's fiscal house in order.
