Learn more about Debt Ceiling

The debt ceiling is the legislative restriction on the amount of national debt that can be issued. When the debt ceiling is reached, the Treasury resorts to suspending civil investments such as retirement accounts and health benefits to federal employees. If the debt ceiling is not raised and/or spending is not reduced, the government will be unable to pay its financial obligations.  See recent debt ceiling news
