The leaders left their meeting on Tuesday with little progress to show but a commitment for staff members to continue to meet daily to try to reach a compromise.

Biden refuses to negotiate with McCarthy.

McCarthy and McConnell spoke to the press following their fruitless meeting with Joe Biden.

“Unfortunately the president has waited 97 DAYS without ever meeting. Every day I asked that we meet and he said no,” McCarthy told reporters touting his plan. “The House has raised the debt ceiling in a responsible matter … does [Biden] not believe there’s any place we could find savings?”

McCarthy said he asked Biden numerous times to tell him which spending cuts he would be open to.

“He wouldn’t give me any,” McCarthy said.
