Zakharova mocks US plans to raise national debt ceiling

Biden has not met with McCarthy since February, although the Speaker of the House has repeatedly urged him to meet to discuss spending cuts and public debt cuts in a higher-ceiling package. Biden had previously refused to meet with McCarthy about the national debt ceiling and demanded that the hike be automatic, as in the past.

Biden is pushing lawmakers to increase public debt limits, but McCarthy attributes the solution to large-scale budget cuts.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen previously warned Congress that without raising or suspending the debt ceiling, the US administration may not be able to fully meet its obligations on June 1.
