McConnell announced Wednesday that Republicans will not filibuster an extension of the debt limit “into December” as long as Democrats put a dollar amount on the increase, giving them more time to enact a long-term solution on their own. The statement from McConnell would appear to offer a short-term fix as the nation faces an October 18 deadline to lift the limit.
