In a move akin to raising the limit on country’s credit card, President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy are in a standoff whether to increase the federal debt ceiling for the 90th time since 1959.

In the simplest terms, McCarthy and Republicans, who hold the majority in the House, say they won't support bumping up the limit without assurances from Biden and Democrats that they'll support spending cuts. Biden says he wants the limit raised and the nation's bills paid before he'll agree to spending cuts.
