McConnell’s game plan:
1) Call for bipartisanship.
2) Dangle vague compromise.
3) Back out last-minute.
4) Threaten not to raise the debt ceiling.
5) Go on Fox News.
6) Bash Biden and Dems.
The goal is to run out the clock.

How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations?
Because that’s who they are.
