The Senate will hold hearings on the debt ceiling bill passed by the GOP-led House starting this week, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced on Monday.

In a letter to colleagues, Schumer made it clear his aim is not so much to pass the bill championed by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) but rather to “expose the true impact of this reckless legislation on everyday Americans.”

Schumer said the Senate Budget Committee would hold a hearing Thursday on the “Default on America Act,” a mocking nickname for the legislation favored by the Democrats.

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) could give Republicans additional leverage in pushing the bill through the upper chamber.
