Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., thinks it is possible that Congress might vote Mark Kirk, Debt Ceiling, Congressagainst raising the debt ceiling, Politico reports.

Kirk also said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” he will “vote no on raising the debt ceiling unless we have comprehensive, dramatic, effective and broad-based cuts to federal spending, including the reform of entitlement spending.”

"I think the best play here is to have the bipartisan deficit commission report of the Gang of Six attached to the debt limit extension," Kirk said. "That would be huge cuts in the future spending of the United States that may be a good deal. Without that we should not send a blank check to the administration."
