In reply to comment: "debt ceiling" is a hoax. (see in situ)

debt ceiling is a euphamism for BORROW MORE to pay down what we BORROWED in the beginning.

the only people it benefits is the lenders, which is why it is being pushed.

in fact, if we defaulted and went into bankcruptcy as a nation, those poor saps would start feeling what many of us have felt for a few years now.

and that, my friends, is what is at risk: their prosperity, not ours.
