Biden, McCarthy to discuss debt limit on Wednesday

Mon, Jan 30, 2023 at 10:48 am

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy will meet with President Biden at the White House this week. Wednesday’s meeting will be their first sit-down since McCarthy became speaker. Topping the agenda is lifting the debt ceiling so the government can pay bills it already incurred. The two leaders have different approaches. The president wants to increase the debt limit without any conditions, while the speaker wants to include spending cuts in any agreement. However, McCarthy is pledging that cuts to Social Security and Medicare will be off the table.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.
