WH: Admin taking every step to prevent shutdown

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday that US President Joe Biden's administration is currently taking every step to prevent a government shutdown in case the debt ceiling isn't raised in time by Congress.

"We are doing everything we can to prevent a government shutdown and planning to prevent the impact that we've seen in the past that has been quite devastating on different components of government," Psaki said.

The spokeswoman also noted that the president will continue seeing senior congressional staff to find measures to fund the proposed emergency support bill and discuss the menu of possible options to generate revenue from.
