So-called debt ceiling?
President Barack Obama speaks during his final news conference of his first term at the East Room of the White House January 14, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Obama spoke on the debt ceiling and deficit reduction during the news conference.
This final note today. A last word from the president on the debt ceiling...
"Now the other congressionally-imposed deadline coming up is the so-called debt ceiling, something most Americans hadn't even heard of before two years ago," said President Obama.
Come again? Far be it for me to pick nits with the leader of the free world, but I'm pretty sure it's just called the debt ceiling. Right?
OK. Yes, pet peeve, but come on.
