Scott Perry: ‘Heads Need to Roll’ Over Biden Admin Lies in Debt Ceiling Fight



Breitbart: Rep. Scott Perry (R-FL) said during a press conference call Sunday that “heads need to roll” over the Biden administration’s lie that the Republican debt ceiling plan would cut veterans’ care.

“If they go forward with it, there’s a real chance that we could see a reduction of 30 million outpatient visits for veterans, as many as 81,000 jobs cut in the Veterans Health Administration. That’s a very real impact on veterans who rely on VA for their health care,” [Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis] McDonough said this week.

House Republicans swiftly denounced McDonough’s assertion that the Limit, Save, Grow Act could harm veterans. Rep. Scott Perry (R-FL), the House Freedom Caucus chairman and a veteran, said that the bill does not do anything to cut Social Security, Medicare, or funding to veterans.

“If they’ve got time to divert this much and resources away from veterans care to lie about it, obviously they’re not focused on our heroes,” the Pennsylvania conservative said. “It is completely wholly unacceptable and heads need to roll for it.”

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), a veteran who served in Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, said, “You have a scenario where this administration is avoiding negotiating with Speaker McCarthy avoiding negotiating with Republicans because all they want is a clean debt ceiling, lift without cuts and spending.”

He continued, “We have to cut spending in order to rein in the debt ceiling and the deficit that we’ve been funding as a government, but I want to make it very clear that none of that’s going to be on military spending. And none of that’s going to be on veterans spending. And again, you have a complete mess of misrepresentations by the Democrats, because they don’t have anything else to offer other than the lie about what Republicans are doing.”

Steube and Davidson’s assertion that Democrats want to avoid defending Biden’s position follows as more Democrats have urged Biden to negotiate with McCarthy on the looming debt ceiling deadline.

Reps. Jared Golden (D-ME) and Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) called on Biden to negotiate.
