Hurricane_HarveyThe Senate will tie a critical hurricane relief measure to legislation that would increase the nation’s borrowing limit, after theHouse planned to take up the two bills separately.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, told the Washington Examiner the Senate will add the debt limit measure after the House passes legislation to provide $8 billion in disaster relief to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey.

“There is no money to spend unless we lift the debt ceiling,” Cornyn said. “So that is what I expect.”

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said the House would take up and pass a Senate bill combining both Harvey funding and the debt ceiling increase.

      Your right. I dont know if potus has that on his mind but we need to stop sending billions to countries that hate us. Why the USA thinks they can buy friends is disgusting. We have wasted trillions on this program. Like 70 million for a gas station in Afghanistan or some sick amount of money. How in the hell can a gas station cost so much to build. Will that mean if they ever open it they will charge what it costs or subsidize it. The last i heard it wont open now thats the way to save taxpayer money. These elites are idiots when it comes to money.
