    Default What happens of the debt ceiling is NOT raised in a few weeks. [Govt. Shutdown]

    I don't know about anyone else, but I constantly get news updates to my phone from USA Today. And recently I've been getting notifications about how everything is going to go to hell if a deal is not reached, which is what most likely will happen. I started getting worried, naturally. So I did some google searching, and found an article that (in my opinion) puts things in a better perspective. I'm on tapatalk so im just going to post the article link, it may be a little lengthy, but I assure you, it's a very informative read.

    Oh and btw a deal was reached that provided pay to some more govt workers that have been laid off during that shutdown so that's good too.

    Do you know what the deal is by chance? I haven't looked at the article yet.

    Which deal? The deal that was reached to provide more govt workers pay, or the debt ceiling needing to be raised?

    I'm pretty sure they're going to reach an agreement.

    The debt ceiling shouldn't be raised.

    Not only that but the government gets enough money from taxes to fund just about everything if not everything. They somehow manage to blow the rest on something we probably don't need.
