“The Republicans just agreed - while they’re in the majority in the House - to two years’ debt ceiling increase totaling four trillion dollars; that is a big deal,” Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin warns, reacting to the bipartisan debt ceiling deal passed by the House on Wednesday.
Thepassed the House because of Democrats' support, as more than seventy Republicans voted against it.
In BlazeTV video posted on his Rumble account, Levin explains how Democrats have no intention of honoring any long-term promises they made to Republicans in order to pass the bill lifting the debt ceiling for two years:
“Now, what is to hold the Democrats’ feet to the fire, if they win the House and the presidency next time around? Or, forget about the presidency, they just win the House.
“Well, we agreed, you know, to a ten-year…
“‘Go screw yourselves,’ that’s what they’re gonna say.”
Levin also refutes “Main Street Caucus” Chair Rep. Dusty Johnson’s (R-SD) claim that “There were no wins for Democrats” in the so-called “compromise” bill agreed to by Pres. Joe Biden and House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.):
“All right, hold on there, hold on, ‘Main Street Caucus.’ Hold on a second:
“You’re lifting the debt ceiling over the next two years by four trillion dollars. That sounds like a big damn win to me.
“That’s what they wanted. That’s what they wanted. They don’t care about ‘out’ years. In other words, anything that goes beyond 20 months.
“If they take the House, all of this is off the table. Do you understand what I’m saying? All of it is off the table.”
