White House: "No One Is Talking About Eliminating Debt Ceiling"


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, speaking at the White House daily press conference, has told reporters that, "no one is talking about eliminating the debt ceiling, or debt limit. That's not what we're talking about."

  • Jean-Pierre says: "Congress is going to need to raise the debt limit without conditions so that's what we're talking about."
  • Jean-Pierre says the White House will not negotiate over the debt ceiling. She says the White House is in the process of reaching out to all the new members of Congress and there should be bipartisan cooperation when it comes to raising the debt ceiling: "It shouldn't be a political football. This is not political gamesmanship."
