Conservative House Republicans are already voicing criticism about the agreement in principle to cap spending and raise the debt ceiling announced late Saturday as the White House and GOP leadership work to avoid a default on the nation's debt.

"Actually, it's so bad they won't give a figure for the debt ceiling hike … only that it's suspended til Q1 2025. Our bill was a year less," Bishop added.

Additionally, Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) tweeted: "I do not like the 'deal' as I understand it from the cheerleading so far… I will have more to follow once I see more details."

Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.), meanwhile, said that he is "appalled by the debt ceiling surrender" McCarthy outlined Saturday evening.

"The bottom line is that the U.S. will have $35 trillion of debt in January, 2025. That is completely unacceptable," Buck tweeted.

President Biden and McCarthy announced that the two sides came to an agreement in principle late Saturday, and the release of the legislative text could come as early as Sunday. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned last week that without congressional action, the country could default on June 5, a deadline that McCarthy says Congress will meet.

McCarthy said he expects the House to hold a vote as soon as Wednesday, when the bill likely will face challenges from conservative GOP members.

The conservative House Freedom Caucus laid out its spending cap demands earlier this year, with the members saying they wanted to cap overall discretionary spending at fiscal 2022 levels for 10 years while allowing for 1 percent growth per year.

"We've got a serious proposal. We urge our colleagues on the Republican side and the Democrat side to come along. If you don't like what we've offered - bless you, that's fine. What have you got to offer?" Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry (R-Pa.) said at the time.

Former President Trump at a CNN town hall earlier this month urged Republicans to allow the nation to default on its debt unless Biden agreed to "massive" cuts. Senate Republicans disavowed his comments, with many saying that they could not allow the U.S. to default.

meh, I was kind of looking forward to seeing the maga elderly and veterans eating dog food while waiting by their mailboxes for those entitlement checks, not to mention the potential for violent backlash against republicans in general worldwide, oh well. mccarthy is still going to lose his chair when the maga domestic terrorists step further into 2024 psycho mode.

It has always been known that the far left hates this country, the military, and by extension...veterans, wishing they eat dog food.

Pretty much clears up why some leftists spell American with a small "a".

I think it's pretty funny and typical how right wing fascists advocate unconstitutional policies while hypocritically hiding behind that same constitution. I don't hate this country, the military, and especially those who have served. I don't hate people that are too ignorant and gullible to vote for their own interests and support those that don't care one bit about them, but I do think that when their personal voting decisions come back to affect all of americans, they specifically should be the first to suffer. especially those that took a nonpartisan oath to defend the constitution against what the politicians they so happily vote for advocate. that oath continues to apply to them while they're still breathing, and just because they wore that uniform in the past, it doesn't provide cover for any willfully chosen unconstitutional political ideologies in the present.

I do hate populist conservative fascism that's heavily seasoned with religious cult dogma and is based upon ideals that are contrary to the constitution. if those morons want a 21st century xtian sparta, fine, they can pack their bags and go start one somewhere else. they can go practice their warped versions of peace, charity and love to their hearts content, and they can leave their passports at the gate on the way out. good riddance. the rules here are set and a minority of morons aren't going to dictate policy for the majority and expect there won't be a backlash. it's in our history and our DNA.

This sums up my problem with so many of the left, I vote what I feel will be best for the country, not for who I think will do the most for me.

You don't hate them but feel qualified to tell them how they should vote.

Interesting.

How'd you get to know all these people so well?

Sounds to me like Biden "owned" the cons again and, if you believe them, he did it in his sleep.

From the start, I've been saying that Biden should refuse any negotiation. He has been smarter than that, setting up an intra-gop bloodbath.

Exactly, brilliant strategy to negotiate without negotiating on the debt limit.  The Consumer Confidence Index is an unimportant indicator anyhow, so it was worth sacrificing.

Just saw on CBS that the progressive caucus told Jeffries they won’t support him, democrats are trying to hold the economy hostage, good thing they don’t matter.

McCarthy only needs 1 vote over half the republicans and Jeffries only needs one vote over half and it passes in spite of what all the chicken littles try to gin up with their fear mongering. Jeffries says he has the votes and McCarthy has 150. 
Biden got rolled and only partisans are still hopeful for conflict.

No one got 'rolled' other than those on the far left and the far right.

So... we have an "agreement in principle" with no details or text. 

So naturally, all the partisans are doing a victory dance.

That's not moronic or anything.

A good negotiator can get most of what he wants and still allow his rivals to claim victory.

He got the debt limit raised.  That's everything he wanted.  That is unless McCarthy promised something he can't deliver.

So he wanted the work requirement raised for welfare?

He wanted student loan payments restarted?

He wanted part of the IRS budget slashed that he worked so hard to get passed?

McCarthy rolled Biden.

Well, then, just like it was a McCarthy problem UNTIL he passed a bill, it is now little Chucky's problem in the Senate.

When is Chuck going to herd his cats?

the freedom caucus will probably reject the compromise before the house vote.
