How close are we to the debt ceiling?
This final note today, in which you get perhaps more detail on the debt ceiling than you actually want, but which will stand you in good stead as you try to digest all the debt stories that’ll be coming your way in the next month or two.
We are, as of last Friday, a mere $76 billion underneath the Congressionally authorized debt ceiling. Governmental pocket change, if you will.
