House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn told CNN on Sunday morning that while Democrats would prefer if Republicans joined them in raising the debt limit at the end of this month, they are willing to do it alone if necessary.
JAKE TAPPER, CNN: But you’re not relying on your Republican friends to vote that way, right? You’re -- you’re fine with a -- it passing in a Democrats’ only vote?
REP. JIM CLYBURN: No, I’m not fine with that. But if that’s what it takes, that’s what it will take. The American people will see what the Republicans are doing on this front as well. They’re doing enough on the social front to destroy the integrity of this country’s fabric and they will see them doing the same thing on the financial front. I think we ought to do what’s necessary and message to the American people exactly who is trying to destroy this great democracy that we hope to keep in place.
