We’re a few weeks away from facing the next fiscal crisis — whether or not to lift the debt limit. Congress and the president will go around and around about that. And then, in early December, there’s going to be yet another one.

Darren Samuelsohn, senior policy reporter at Politico, spent some time looking into what happens when we lurch from budget crisis to budget crisis in his piece Welcome to CR Hell.
