Ryan: 'Disgraceful' Dems Want to 'Play Politics' With Debt Ceiling
07 September, 2017, 01:31 | Author: Pamela Mathis
Rep. Roger Williams supports sending billions for Harvey aid, but said in a statement early Wednesday he was "disappointed there has been mention of combining this critical funding with a debt ceiling increase".
The first installment in Harvey aid is to handle the immediate emergency needs and replenish Federal Emergency Management Agency reserves in advance of Hurricane Irma, which is barreling through the Caribbean toward Florida. An additional $450 million would help finance disaster loans through the Small Business Association.
Leaders said they were especially confident that they initial bill would pass the House. The Senate could add a debt ceiling provision to the Harvey bill after the House passes it, but House conservatives have demanded spending cuts or other cost-cutting changes in return for raising the debt limit.
The vote comes hours after Democratic leadership offered to support the Harvey relief bill under the condition that a three-month debt increase is attached to the legislation.
"We will not leave until this is done", Speaker of the House Paul Ryansaid this morning.
Ryan called the Democrat's idea a "ridiculous idea" and that they "want to play politics with the debt ceiling".

Republican leaders, according to the source, pushed for an 18-month debt limit hike, then floated six months. The White House hinted at calling for an increase to be included in the disaster aid bill.
McCarthy reiterated that "Now all that will get done this month, but for those members who get afraid and don't want to tackle the tough issues, I say, the sooner we do it, the stronger we are and the more that we can get done moving forward and get to greater growth". "Republican leaders were visibly annoyed by Ivanka's presence".
While his vocal support suggests the idea could get broad support from Republicans, Cornyn, who is the GOP whip, said he had not had time to gauge all his colleagues - though he added he "believe (s) that's the plan".
What's also unclear is how long the debt limit will be lifted for.
"I think that's a mistake", he said.
