Debt ceiling rhetoric from both sides has blurred the reality that the US Government continues to spend more money than it takes in.
On this broadcast, we explain what the debt consist of, who owns it and short / long term impact on federal policy and interest rates.
The House has voted to defund ObamaCare while fully funding the government. Ted Cruz calls on Senate Republicians to not allow Harry Reid to use "procedural tricks" to put funding for ObamaCare back into the Continuing Resolution. Obama says he will veto any C.R. bill that doesn't fund the Affordable Care Act which could lead to a "government shutdown". Meanwhile, Obama tells America that raising the Debt Ceiling does not increase national debt. We'll start there but we will also talk about how Obama has waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to opposition groups in Syria. Next; first he wanted Obama to skip coming to Congress and just attack Syria, then he wanted to limit free speech, and now Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to seek authorization for the U.S. to attack Iran. Other topics if time allows; Dianne Feinstein says "First Amendment Is A Special Privilege", Not A Right! and a Maryland Parent Arrested While Speaking Out Against Common Core at a Public Forum.
