Democrats are trying their damnedest to bully Kevin McCarthy and Republicans over the debt ceiling and using over-the-top language in order to do it.
Rep @AOC: "@SpeakerMcCarthy has responsibility to concede. So if he wants any Democratic support, he has to come to the table & we have seen him over & over again say that he will not negotiate, that they're engaged in hostage taking, not negotiation. Extortion, not conversation" pic.twitter.com/5niqk0Qb1C

I don’t know what AOC is even talking about because Kevin McCarthy is the only one who seems to want to negotiate over the debt ceiling in Washington. He’s been trying to get Biden to sit down on this for months and only now that his back is against the wall is Biden even entertaining the idea of negotiations.
To accuse McCarthy of ‘hostage taking’ and ‘extortion’ is nothing but lies and I’d hope the American people aren’t falling for it.
