Republican Hard-Liners Threaten Reckoning for Debt-Limit Deal
(Bloomberg) -- Hard-line Republican lawmakers threatened to exact revenge for a deal between the White House and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to avert a catastrophic US debt default.
No matter what happens, there is going to be a reckoning, Representative Chip Roy of Texas said Tuesday, adding that House Republicans have been torn asunder by the agreement.
Roy and other members of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus didnt say at a press conference whether they would seek the ouster of McCarthy over the agreement, a critical point of leverage hard-liners have at their disposal. But leaders denounced the bargain in fiery terms.
