There is no “good Republican”.
Holy shit. Top Republican Rick Allen (R-GA) was just recorded saying his party is going after Social Security because people “want to work longer.” (h/t @SSWorks) pic.twitter.com/gQln56a4A2

2/ It's important not to lose the forest for the trees here. What they're proposing really isn't possible. This got hashed out in 2011. It's best seen as a way to try to blame it on the White House when the USG does go into debt default.

The main reason Reagan attacked the social safety net is because the civil rights movement forced government to be inclusive and once those benefits went to minorities too the benefits themselves came under attack. That where "welfare queen"came from and why. https://t.co/C0LS4mZLni

“It is important – we’re not going to work our way around this. We’re not going to negotiate on this,” @PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre says. It’s a basic duty of Congress to deal with this issue, and Ds and Rs during Trump admin were able to deal with debt limit 3 times, she says.

“We are not going to be negotiating over the debt ceiling,” Biden’s @PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre says when asked about talking with GOP in Congress. “This is something that should be done without conditions.” https://t.co/2igR6gQIJ7
