Black Caucus: Let GOP Cough Up The Votes

August 1, 2011 

By issuing this Whip Notice the CBC makes clear it is more interested in playing politics then ensuring our nation avoids default. 

The Congressional Black Caucus is refusing to vote for the debt ceiling legislation until “the majority of Republican members have voted” on the package.

 According to a whip notice sent out by the CBC’s vote-counter Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.), the group “convened and agreed to abstain” from voting until the GOP provides the votes.

It’s just another wrinkle in the debt ceiling fight. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters this afternoon that all leaders should provide support because they’ve all signed off on the agreement.
