The bipartisan deal that President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy reportedly negotiated over the weekend, which is anticipated to protect the United States from defaulting on its debt, was harshly criticized by several prominent conservatives in the wake of its passage.

While the agreement’s specifics are still being worked out and congressional leaders must still persuade their Members to vote in favor of it, some of Washington, D.C.’s top Republicans are not thrilled with the outcome.

“There are members of the GOP claiming Democrats got nothing from the ‘deal.’ Oh really? 1) An uncapped debt ceiling with an expiration date – worth approximately $4 trillion…? 2) basically no cuts – a freeze at bloated 2023 spending level? ZERO claw back of the $1.2 Trillion ‘inflation reduction act’ crony giveaways to elite leftists for grid-destroying unreliable energy…? 4) 98% of the IRS expansion left fully in place…? 5) no work requirements for Medicaid? – & only age adjustments for TANF/SNAP…?”

“No REINS act statutory requirement for congress to approve huge regulations – just an ‘administrative’ paygo that the administration will get to enforce? 7) No border security!! – & a deal allowing them to avoid policy riders in the fall… 8) more…” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) tweeted.

Senator Rand Paul also joined in the chorus of conservatives condemning the deal.

“Fake conservatives agree to fake spending cuts. Deal will increase mandatory spending ~5%, increase military spending ~3%, and maintain current non-military discretionary spending at post-COVID levels. No real cuts to see here. Conservatives have been sold out once again!” he wrote.
