Government weeks away from hitting debt ceiling, report warns
(MCT) — WASHINGTON — While official Washington is focused on potential tax hikes and automatic spending cuts, another fiscal crisis looms on the horizon. A report released Tuesday warned that the federal government is likely to hit a ceiling on issuing new debt come late December and could begin defaulting on obligations by mid-February.
The report from the influential Bipartisan Policy Center, a policy think tank, also highlighted why there’s less room for the Treasury Department to maneuver than during last year’s debt ceiling debacle. The center warned that financial markets may see greater turmoil than in 2011.
