Kinzinger and Cheney both voted to shut down the government and default on our debts while also denying disaster relief aid. There are no good Republicans.

They don’t exist.
And, unlike the MSM, we won’t pretend otherwise.
It’s debt ceiling time again. When the GOP takes hostage the full faith and credit of the United States.😠
Important to remember McConnell is the one putting a gun not only to head of Democrats but also to the global economy. But Senate Dems could take away the gun at any time by exempting debt ceiling from filibuster & so far they haven’t even hinted at considering that. https://t.co/RETagmXSI4

i get that there's a lot going on, and there certainly has been some coverage of it, but it feels like it should be bigger news that senate republicans plan to vote in favor of crashing the entire united states economy and openly demand that democrats alone prevent it.

I’m sick to my stomach that Republicans are explicitly promising to take the country into an economic abyss and many reporters are like “How wily! How will Democrats navigate this?”

Remember increasing the debt ceiling HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FUTURE SPENDING. It only allows the bills to be paid for money already spent.

NEW: the House just passed legislation to prevent a shutdown and fund government operations and disaster relief efforts.
The bill would also avert a default that could wreck the U.S. economy and destroy huge numbers of jobs.
I voted YES.
Every Republican voted against it. pic.twitter.com/8ntY4JsuEV

Mitch McConnell says the GOP will vote for the U.S. to default on its debt. https://t.co/yvuOLNMIb3

And for good measure, we get this bullshyt from Big Gums of South Carolina, who was NEVER negotiating in good faith😠
This is complete bullshit! So tired of the GOP playing politics with the lives of Americans.
You can’t find 10 GOP Senators to say the sky is blue if it it was something Joe Biden or Democrats supported. Yet another absolutely shameful act in the GOP book of shameful acts. https://t.co/yZ9BWOYl5I
