Eliminate the debt ceiling

Economist Paul Krugman believes that the United States is close to defaulting on its debt, calling for the abolition of the federal debt ceiling.

The Nobel laureate (OTC:) in Economics said: The possibility that the US federal government will be unable to finance its normal operations has become a reality.

He added, “If that happens, it will be because Republicans in the US Congress are trying to exploit the debt ceiling to extort political concessions that they would not have a chance to obtain through the normal legislative process.”
