Question of the Day: What should we do about the debt ceiling?


Here is the Question of the Day:

Discussions on a budget compromise between President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy were called “productive” by Rep. McCarthy, but a solution to a potential debt default has not been found. The deficit, or how much the government borrows in a year, is different from the national debt, which is the cumulative amount the government has borrowed throughout the nation's history. The U.S. could start running short of cash as soon as June 1, and it has been reported that veterans, seniors and government employees would be among the first impacted by a U.S. default. What’s the answer to the debt ceiling crisis?
