Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in an interview on Sunday ahead of talks with President Biden dismissed the idea that the U.S. would default on its debt.

The U.S. hit its technical borrowing limit of around $31.4 trillion earlier this month, but as McCarthy alluded, the Treasury will be able to keep the government’s bills paid until sometime in June. Now, lawmakers must reach a deal to raise the debt ceiling so the government can take on new debt and avoid a default.

But early indications are that Democrats and Republicans are far apart on their demands. The White House and many Democrats want the debt ceiling to be increased with no strings attached. Republicans and a small number of moderate Democrats want the White House to commit to spending cuts before an agreement on the borrowing limit.

“We’re not going to default,” McCarthy told CBS on Sunday. “This won’t come to fruition until sometime in June.”

“There will not be a default,” he continued. “But what is really irresponsible is what the Democrats are doing right now, saying we just raise the limit.”

“The responsible thing to do is sit down like two adults and start having that discussion,” McCarthy added.

  1. No raising of the ceiling! Just cut spending! It’s not difficult. Regular Americans do it all of the time. My income has not increased, but the cost of everything has for the last 18 months. Cuts have to be made, so I make them.
