Senator Lindsey Graham Says Biden 'Should Be IMPEACHED' For Abandoning Americans-ss-Featured

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) spoke out on Thursday during an interview with “Hannity” on Fox News about the Senate’s vote in connection to increasing the debt ceiling.

In the interview, he lamented that the Republican Party “blinked” even after they initially promised not to help Democrats increase the ceiling for debt. He then added that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

“Well, we screwed up,” the senator said. “For two months, we’ve promised to the American people that we would not help the Democratic Party raise the debt ceiling so they could spend $3.5 to $5 trillion through reconciliation. At the end of the day, we blinked. Two things have happened: We’ve let our people down, and we made the Democrats believe we are all talk and no action,” he went on to say.

He then said: “At the end of the day, every Republican voted against raising the debt ceiling. Every Democratic senator voted for it. But we had a process in place. We made a promise for two months that we would make them do it without our help, and we folded. And I hate that. We are in a hole. We have got to dig out of the hole, and we can’t. We shot ourselves in the foot tonight, but we will revisit the issue in December.”
