Article 14: What is it? Supporters call for raising the debt ceiling, but Biden declines

Article 14 of the US Constitution states that Congress has the power to borrow money on the credit of the United States. In recent weeks, a group of conservative legislators have demanded that President Joe Biden invoke Article 14 and mint a trillion-dollar coin to raise the debt ceiling but Biden has so far refused, stating he would prefer to work out a more traditional deal with Congress to raise the limit.
