    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) slammed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and President Joe Biden on Sunday, accusing them of not wanting to eliminate waste from the Democrats' massive omnibus bill.

    McCarthy made the remarks during an appearance on CBS News's "Face The Nation" with Margaret Brennan while discussing raising the debt ceiling.

    "The responsible thing to do is sit down like two adults and start having that discussion," McCarthy said. "What has happened with the debt limit is you reached your credit card limit. Should we just continue to raise the limit? Or should we look at what we're spending?"

    When Brennan claimed it was about paying off past commitments, McCarthy responded, "No, no. Chuck Schumer never passed a budget since he's been leading. He's never passed an appropriation bill. Those are the most basic things that Congress should do."

    "The only person who is getting in the way right now, is the president and Schumer," McCarthy said. "They won't even pass a budget. They won't even negotiate. We have now til June. I want to make sure we have something responsible, something that we can move forward on and something that we can balance our debt with."

    "That's exactly what I've been asking for," he concluded. "The only one who's playing with the markets right now is the president to have the idea that he wouldn't talk. Did the president really believe and really all your viewers, do you believe there's no waste in government? Do you believe there was no waste in that $1.7 trillion? That's what we were spending just four weeks ago. So I think the rational position here is sit down, eliminate the waste and put us on a path to balance."
