Republican senators pledge not to help Democrats on debt ceiling

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in an interview that some 46 Republicans have signed on to a letter that he circulated during a rapid-fire series of votes on a budget resolution that kicks off Democrats’ efforts to pass a $3.5 trillion cornerstone of President Biden’s agenda.
