The issue of raising the debt limit has become a point of contention between the Biden administration and Republicans in the US House of Representatives. Republicans have demanded that President Biden negotiate with them on the issue, but the White House has so far refused to do so. The disagreement highlights the ideological divide between the two parties over fiscal policy. Democrats have argued that the nation must borrow to invest in infrastructure and other programs to bolster economic growth, while Republicans have pushed for more spending restraint and fiscal discipline. The disagreement has also revealed a split within the Republican Party, with some GOP lawmakers pushing for negotiations while others have expressed support for the Biden administration’s stance.
