Hoyer urges McConnell to back raising debt limit

United States House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (pictured) urged on Monday US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to vote in favor of raising the limit of the US federal debt and "convince" his "fellow Republican senators" to do the same.

"It is time for you and the Republican Conference you lead to do as we did before – to do the right thing, the necessary thing, to avert a manufactured crisis," the letter, signed by Hoyer and 63 other House Democrats, read.

McConnell previously urged the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling but noted they must do it alone due to the fact that they control the entire government.
