VALHALLA, NY — The president of the United States will be visiting the Hudson Valley on Wednesday. President Joe Biden is scheduled to speak at an event discussing the clean debt ceiling, which is the limit on how much money the federal government can borrow to pay for its expenses. The debt ceiling has become a contentious issue in recent years, with partisan disagreements over how to handle it.
A day after meeting with top congressional leaders, President Joe Biden headed to New York's Hudson Valley to make the case for a clean debt ceiling. The president and top congressional leaders held a closed-door meeting on the debt ceiling but did not come to an agreement.
During his visit, Biden emphasized the importance of raising the debt ceiling without any conditions attached, arguing that it is necessary to avoid a potential economic catastrophe. He also stressed that this is not a partisan issue, but rather a matter of ensuring the stability of the US economy.
