OOPS: Karoline Leavitt Opposes Suspending Debt Ceiling, Forgets Trump Admin Raised Ceiling When She Was at White House

Leavitt's position isn't just her flexing right-wing Twitter muscles. A study from Moody's found that the partisan games Leavitt is calling for have serious consequences. Their study found a prolonged impasse over the debt ceiling would cost the U.S. economy up to 6 million jobs, wipe out $15 trillion in household wealth, and send the unemployment rate up to 9 percent.

DCCC Spokesperson James Singer

"As this GOP primary becomes more crowded and nasty, the irresponsible and reckless positions from Karoline Leavitt continue to pile up. These extreme positions would devastate Granite State families and small businesses."
