Pelosi to Reject Latest White House Debt Limit Offer Over Cuts

Source: Bloomberg

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rebuffing a White House demand for $150 billion in spending cuts as debt ceiling deal negotiations continue, according to a Democratic official close to the talks.

The extended talks mean Congress and the White House will be pushing up against Pelosiís deadline to get a deal on spending levels and the debt ceiling done before the House leaves town for its August recess. The Trump administration late Thursday gave Democrats a menu of $574 billion in savings options from which to find $150 billion to offset the costs of a two-year budget cap agreement.

Roughly half of the administration proposals are cuts and the others come from reforms, two people familiar with the proposal said. One of the suggested reforms is the drug pricing plan from the White Houseís 2020 budget, which would save $115 billion, one of the people said.

Mnuchin has said that under one of the Treasury Departmentís most conservative estimates, the U.S. will be at risk of defaulting on payment obligations in early September -- before lawmakers are scheduled to return from their summer recess on Sept. 9.

1. Offer cuts Nancy

Cuts to golf outings, cuts to family world travel, cuts to endless KKKlan rallies, cuts to congress and presidential retirements that extend to spouses, (Fuck Malania's life long funding) cuts to fried chicken and Burders consumption, cuts to Israel and Saudi Arabia subsidies, cuts to Corporate subsidies, cut to subsidies to people that are going broke for tariffs, cuts to the fucking wall, cut all the grifting to tRump and GOP. Cut the salaries of McConnell and GOP that refuse to work. Make billionaires pay taxes, and end off shore stash houses. If they hate America so much they will not pay for it as we do, go back to where their cash stays. Why do they hate America? Use some of that🐘🇷🇺💰💰 to pay for America, not GOP puppets.

3. I like the platform you have presented to Nancy,

I would vote for it in a heartbeat! It has been two years since #Enough is enough" made it's debut. I am so past that! All we have to do is rescind the republican tax cut for the 1% and corporations, and then close the loopholes that allow the "rich" to pay no taxes. I'd like to send tRump and his ilk a bill for their past taxes that they did not pay!

5. That about says it all!

Well stated! The Dem leadership should use it as their talking points and keep repeating it over and over again just like the CONS always do - expect this will actually have a factual basis, unlike their litany of bullshit and propaganda.

15. budget cuts

 

Cut all aid to countries that have less debt than the US, and that have their own National Health care, like Israel. Stop all aid to ME countries who are rich with oil. Stop trump's golf $, stop all federal spending at turmp properties, stop taxpayers having to pay for trump rallies, his 4th of July party where only Republicans were invited etc etc.

Kill the tax theft bill and add 10% tax on all millionaires and billionaires. Charge all corporations 35% tax and make all corporations like Walmart and Amazon who aren't paying taxes, pay back taxes for all years they escaped taxes. Make Robert Mercer pay the 7 Billion he owes in back taxes etc.

Make all business who have relocated out of our country to pay a special tax to sell their products in the US, like the trumps and Idumbka trump.
What else?? Add to the list and we'll send it to Speaker Pelosi.

PS Trump is now working on cutting $$$ from SS and Medicare and Medicaid.
Kill those cuts.

17. Preach

Not one penny from our "paid into" safety nets until every single one of those you mention are cut. Then, still not one penny until congressional and presidential retirement is slashed. If dems push that out loud, 2020 will be a slaughter of repukelicans.

11. No matter who is in charge increasing the debt ceiling should always be a clean bill

The budget is the time and place to haggle over where cuts and additional spending need to be made, there should be no debate attached to meeting our obligations.
