Debt Limit

Senate poised to raise debt limit by $2.5T, avoiding default

The Senate was poised Tuesday to lift the nation's debt limit by $2.5 trillion under a deal struck between party leaders, defusing a volatile issue until after next year's midterm elections while saddling majority Democrats with a tough vote.

Tough vote? Oh, so the GOP maxxed out the government's bank accounts (yet again) but the Dems get the pressure, got it. This is a CLEAR WIN for the Dems and a capitulation from McConnell. Of course no majors will write that though
By 'tough vote' you mean 'routine vote that's been taken by both parties every year or so since the 1920's' but yeah I guess you have to get the GOP talking point in there somehow...
