Keith Ellison (D-MN) (on crutches) takes questions from reporters on the way to a crucial vote on the debt deal. The Congressional Progressive Caucus and its co-chair, Ellison, came out against the debt ceiling deal of President Barack Obama and congressional leadership. At a just completed press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on August 1, 2011, Ellison said tea party-aligned members of the Republican Party have held our economy hostage by demanding large cuts and opposing tax increases in exchange for raising the debt limit.
