McConnell and Pawlenty:  No Debt Ceiling Lift Without Cuts

The Detroit Free Press reports two Republican heavyweights went on the record Sunday against raising the debt ceiling without substantial cuts to the national debt.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” he was willing to keep the ceiling in place “unless we do something really significant about debt and deficit.”  Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican candidate for president, made similar statements on ABC’s “This Week.”  The San Francisco Gate goes on to report “Republicans are under enormous pressure from Tea Party conservatives to curtail spending.”
