House Democratic leader Pelosi presses Republicans for plan to avoid U.S. default

WASHINGTON, Aug 24 (Reuters) - House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called on Thursday for Republicans to come up with a plan to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and avoid a default.

“With the White House, House and Senate under one party control, the American people expect and deserve a plan from Republicans to avert a catastrophic default and ensure the full faith and credit of the United States,” said Pelosi. (Reporting by Makini Brice; Editing by David Alexander)
