Default debt ceiling

This is so scary because I doubt anyone will join in my thread and then I'll feel like a big fat loser.

I just wanted to post this link because it is an amazingly non partisan podcast description of the debt ceiling and budget process. It tells, from a staffer's view, about what is involved and the process by which the these issues get decided as well as the duties of the various members of the Congress.

Warning: It's over an hour and I couldn't figure out how to pause it.
