Hmm... Was it genuine spine or a fundraising ploy?
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is fundraising off of the debt ceiling negotiations.
In a fundraising email sent out Thursday, DSCC executive director Guy Cecil highlighted a warning President Obama reportedly made to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) during Wednesday's negotiations to increase the debt ceiling.
"Don't call my bluff," Cecil writes in the fundraising email. "These were the strong words President Obama had for Eric Cantor, leader of the Congressional “Hell No” Caucus."
If the debt ceiling isn't raised, Republicans will blame Democrats for the economic fallout, Cecil adds in the email.
"If a debt ceiling deal is not reached, they will spend millions blaming Democrats. And we will need to fight back against every single lie," Cecil writes.
