Reid On Debt Ceiling: ‘I’m Afraid’


Senate Majority Leader Harry (D-NV) on Sunday said he was worried about Congress’ ability to agree to a debt ceiling increase.

“I’m afraid,” Reid said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” about Congress’ need to raise the debt limit at some point in February or March.

Reid said that while he was pleased that Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) were able to reach a budget deal, he felt that Republican’s fight against raising the debt ceiling in November does not bode well for the next vote.

“I am really concerned about what’s going on with Republicans in Congress,” Reid said.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has already indicated that Republicans would put up a fight over the next debt ceiling vote.
