From Twitter, minutes ago:

Sherrod Brown will support the fiscal cliff bill, insists Democrats will not negotiate around debt limit.

9:55 PM - 31 Dec 12



Also from Beutler, a few minutes later:

Seems like Biden had to do -- and did -- a lot of reassuring that Dems will NOT negotiate for debt limit increase.

10. No he is not.

A deal has been negotiated...he has protected the middle class. Republicans were taken to the cleaners. Middle-class has been protected.

2. What does that mean, they won't negotiate for a debt limit increase?

Well, you can pretty much rest assured that Republicans will pull the same stunt they did last time, so then what? Who do you think is gonna cave first? I certainly wouldn't bet on head-in-the-sand Republicans backing down.

This is just sad. If they won't negotiate around the debt limit, why not include an automatic debt limit increase in this piece of crap tax agreement? Sigh...

Thank you to Senator Brown to care about poor people.

7. I don't understand why the Treasury

Secretary can't raise the debt limit without Congress.. I hope they figure out some way to get it raised without giving up anything.. Geithner has even said the 14th Ammendment could be used..

9. Chill

This means the Dems will NOT negotiate with the Republicans when it comes to the debt limit. In other words, the GOP will try to hold the economy hostage and the Dems will not negotiate.

This is a good thing

13. Yes

Flip the GOP the middle finger. Their Wall Street overlords will not allow a default. And if the GOPers demand cuts, then demand additional revenue...1 to 1. If the GOP refuses, they once again look unreasonable and the country will hold them responsible.

14. The word reassuring is what bothers me. He did not say the Dems will NOT negotiate

"Seems like Biden had to do -- and did -- a lot of reassuring that Dems will NOT negotiate FOR debt limit increase." that does not sound at all like "the Dems will NOT negotiate with the Republicans when it comes to the debt limit."
Seems like the second tweet was a clarification of the first tweet
