Some Democrats are frustrated with the energy-related measures in the debt ceiling package, which must be signed into law by President Joe Biden by June 5 in order to avoid a government default. POLITICO’s Josh Siegel breaks down what’s bothering Democrats, why the White House is defending its debt ceiling deal, and what’s next in terms of energy permitting negotiations.
