We are keeping our collective fingers crossed that common sense will prevail in Washington and before the sun goes down today, Congress will vote to raise the debt ceiling so the world can keep turning. This is probably the toughest challenge the President has faced so far, and depending on the outcome, he could be a one term president.
Whether the debt ceiling is lifted or not, we have to ask ourselves, why are these people in Washington? Is this what we sent them there to do? We don’t have time for political grandstanding- they are there to get a job done. This is not a Republican debt ceiling or a Democrat debt ceiling. If the right thing is not done now, the debt ceiling is going to fall on everybody.
