Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) called on House Republicans on Monday to lay out the spending cuts they’re proposing as part of a deal to raise the debt ceiling and decried what he called their strategy of “brinkmanship” and “hostage taking” to open negotiations, The Hill reports.
Said Schumer: “The new rules that they adopted require them to bring a proposal to the floor of the House and show the American people precisely what kind of cuts they want to make. If Republicans are talking about draconian cuts, they have an obligation to show Americans what those cuts are and let the public react.”
