U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday wrote in a letter to President Joe Biden that "Senate Democrats do not need Republican cooperation in any shape or form" to pass a debt limit increase bill.

McConnell again stated that Democrats should pass a debt limit increase using special "reconciliation" procedures allowing the legislation to pass on a simply majority of 51 votes.
