Opposition mounting to Wednesday’s House vote to suspend debt ceiling

More than 30 Republican lawmakers now say they will vote against passing new debt ceiling legislation Wednesday evening when the bill moves to the full House for vote.

The opposition group is made up of both far-right leaning members of the House Freedom Caucus, as well as others who voted for Speaker Kevin McCarthy‘s leadership bid in January.

Not all representatives have yet declared which way they intend to vote on the legislation, which cleared the House Rules Committee Tuesday by a 7 to 6 vote.
