Sooner Than Later?

The nation could reach its debt limit earlier than anticipated, according to a new report from the Bipartisan Policy Center. "We estimate that Treasury will exhaust its borrowing authority and no longer have sufficient funds to meet its obligations in full and on time at some point between February 15 and March 1. It will be difficult for Treasury to get beyond the March 1 date in our judgment,” said the organization's Economic Policy Project senior director Steve Bell.
