Biden invites congressional leaders, including McCarthy, to the White House under threat of default

WASHINGTON, May 2 – RIA Novosti. The press office of the US leader said that US President Joe Biden invited congressional leaders, including Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, to a meeting at the White House on May 9.

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

“President Biden called House Speaker McCarthy to invite him to a meeting with (Household Democratic Minority Leader) Jeffries, (Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck) Schumer and (Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch) McConnell at the White House on May 9. ” , said the press release.

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.
