The Congressional Progressive Caucus and its co-chair, Keith Ellison (D-MN), have come out against the debt ceiling deal of President Barack Obama and congressional leadership. At a 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.
