Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday said Republicans will demand steep spending cuts during the next round of budget negotiations.
“The tax issue is finished, over, completed. That’s behind us now. The question is: What are we going to do about the biggest problem confronting us and our future?” McConnell said.
McConnell said the next round of negotiations over a deal to raise the debt-ceiling would need to include Democratic concessions on spending.
