Sanders also downplayed friction between the White House and congressional Republicans. Congress faces an October deadline to increase the government's borrowing authority and avoid defaulting on US obligations. That could hurt the United States' credit rating, cause financial turmoil, harm the USA economy and possibly trigger a recession.
The Treasury Department has said the ceiling must be raised by September 29. The bill was overwhelmingly supported in Congress by both parties and was signed into law earlier this month.
Amid reports of a fractured alliance between President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a White House spokeswoman on Thursday disputed that there was tension between the two men. Their behind-closed-doors planning process so far on tax reform has ignored the Democrats.
Democrats are nearly uniformly opposed to paying for the border wall and their leaders are putting the onus for raising the government's borrowing authority on Republicans, who control the White House and both chambers of Congress. "But at the same time, President Trump has worked with leader McConnell to reach out to other members and to work on those shared goals and we're going continue to do that when the Senate comes back from recess".
The Trump administration has made it clear that border security is one of its top priorities.
It's time House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped even trying to patch over their differences with a president who shows no inclination to work with Congress or his party or who can even articulate a core set of principles that govern his actions.
And their job didn't get any easier on Thursday when President Trump continued his attacks on congressional leaders over their failure to raise the federal debt ceiling. But Sanders said Thursday that Trump was open to raising the debt ceiling without additional provisions. He also said the idea of tying debt ceiling legislation to the veterans bill had been considered, but that they still have more options.
So he didn't. He just criticized Arizona's two Republican senators while in their home state without using their names. "We need to be able to pay our debts".
The phrase came before Trump went on to explain that reconciliation rules prevented Republicans from including some policy ideas the GOP universally agrees on in the health care bill.
Democrats have been talking about using the debt ceiling as a lever against Republican tax reform since June and laid out their conditions for working together on tax legislation in an August 1 letter to Trump and Republican leaders.
