Crucial days ahead as debt ceiling deal goes for vote and Biden calls lawmakers for support


There are crucial days ahead as The White House and congressional leaders work to pass a compromise package in time to lift the nation's borrowing limit and prevent a U.S. default. A key test will come this afternoon when the House rules committee is scheduled to consider the debt limit package and vote on sending it to the full House, officials say the U.S. risks default as soon as June 5th, President Biden says he feels good about the deal negotiated with House speaker Kevin McCarthy and has been calling lawmakers ahead of this week's votes in Congress. There are still concerns about the deal's passage with some hard right conservatives criticizing the lack of deep spending cuts they wanted, and liberals denouncing policy changes like new work requirements for older Americans in the food aid program, the full House is expected to vote on Wednesday.
