So we have a temporary break in the DC deadlock. Still a lot of name calling, slightly less loud, and I’m betting it’s short lived. Today I ran across this article from EconoMonitor’s Robert Reich, What to Expect During the Cease Fire.
“The war isn’t over. It’s only a cease-fire. Republicans have agreed to fund the federal government through January 15 and extend the government’s ability to borrow (raise the debt ceiling) through Feb. 7. The two sides have committed themselves to negotiate a long-term budget plan by mid-December. Regardless of what happens in the upcoming budget”
Some good thoughts from the debt ceiling to Social Security. Well worth a read.
