A member of Congress is warning that Joe Biden’s refusal to work with Congress to address the looming need to raise the national debt limit is a “national security threat.”
The comments come from Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
He was joined by Democrat Rep. Jim Himes, of Connecticut, in a conversation about the coming deadline, and Himes said, “The Russians and the Chinese would seek to exploit it. The United States has never really come close to defaulting on its debt before. So it’s hard for us to imagine what that might look like.”
Turner said Biden should bear the weight of the problem.

“I think if the president fails to negotiate with Congress and has continued out-of-control spending that threatens our economy, that it is a national security threat,” he said.
The GOP-run House already has adopted a bill that would, in fact, directly address the borrowing limit.
But it also would cut some federal spending, and Biden has stated over and over he will not negotiate. He insists that he alone can – and will – dictate the terms of congressional legislation.
