Will GOP give in on debt ceiling debate?

Rep. Jeff Denham, (R) California, said lawmakers have to give the American people “some sort of blueprint to show ...what our priorities are" in a debt ceiling deal.

Asked if congressional Republicans would go for the Senate deal, which would fund the government until January 15 and raise the debt ceiling until February 7, reported Monday afternoon, Denham said, “I think it’s in the details.”

“There should be some teeth in there,” he said. “Some things that would make both parties come together.”
