Barney Frank: U.S. Government Default Likely

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank(D-Newton) says America might have to default on its bills for the first time ever because Democrats and Republicans can’t agree to raise the government’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling.
“I’m pessimistic about anything reasonable (winning congressional approval) in the near term,” Frank, the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, told the New England Council in a Boston speech today. “It may be that we’re going to have to see some failure to raise the debt limit and some temporary hiatus in our ability to pay our bills (for lawmakers to act).”
The U.S. government officially hit its congressionally mandated debt ceiling on Monday when the nation’s red ink reached $14.3 trillion.Uncle Sam only avoided defaulting on his debts because U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner used accounting tricks to keep the government solvent until Aug. 2.

  5. interesting that the dems don't think the ceiling will be raised! e can only hope the repubs will stick to this...by an overwhelming margin all polls are saying people don't want it raised and letters have been sent en mass to reps saying they will NOT win elections if it is.
    Let's hope!(but don't hold your breath)
