instaPoll: What action do you think Congress should take regarding the debt
Office of Congressman J. Randy Forbes
Today, our national debt is over $16 trillion, and while we reached the debt ceiling in May, the Treasury Department has been taking steps to avoid defaulting on our obligations. However, Treasury Secretary Lew informed Congress that those measures will be exhausted by mid-October. As such, Congress is now faced with whether to raise the debt ceiling or risk a possible default on our debt as a country.
Question of the week: What action do you think Congress should take regarding the debt ceiling? (multi-select)
( ) Donâ€™t raise it. We cannot keep borrowing money to pay our bills.
( ) Suspend it for one year and then raise it to account for the additional borrowing that occurred during that time.
( ) Raise it. We cannot default on our debt.
( ) Raise it with the condition that future spending is decreased.
( ) Raise it with the condition that sequestration is eliminated.
( ) Raise it with the condition that the health care law is delayed.
( ) I donâ€™t know.
( ) Other.
