A Question for House Republicans

| Thu Sep. 26, 2013 2:54 PM EDT

I'm curious about something. House Republicans have issued a list of demands that they want met before they'll agree to raise the debt ceiling. Obviously President Obama is opposed to all their demands. So has anyone asked any of these House Republicans why they think Obama should accept their proposal?

To be clear, my question to them is: Why should Obama care about raising the debt ceiling? Why not just let it stay where it is? Has anyone asked them this?
