Debt limit meeting between Biden and Hill leaders postponed
President Joe Biden’s planned Friday meeting with top congressional leaders to discuss the debt ceiling has been called off, according to a White House spokesperson.
The group has instead agreed to meet next week. No reason was given for the postponement, which comes as the White House and GOP leaders have just weeks before a June 1 deadline to strike a deal that raises the nation’s borrowing limit.
But both chambers of Congress are scheduled to be out of session on Friday, and there’s been little evident progress since Tuesday’s meeting.
The postponement was first reported by The Washington Post.
