There is No Chance the US Debt Limit will Not be Raised
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said there is “Zero chance” Congress will allow the country to default on its debt by voting to not increase the borrowing limit.
Senator McConnell’s comments came Monday during a joint appearance in his home State of Kentucky with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Senator McConnell did not mention President Trump during his remarks, his 1st public comments since the President publicly criticized him for failing to pass a repeal of former President Barack Hussein Obama’s ACA healthcare law.
Secretary Mnuchin said it is his “strong preference” that Congress pass a “clean” increase to the debt limit, meaning the legislation would have no other proposals attached to it that would make it more difficult to pass. McConnell did not comment on that request, but vowed to “get the job done.”
