National Debt Hits $16T; GOP Critical

“The debt topped the $16 trillion mark on Friday.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said the government will likely reach its debt limit at the end of the year. However, Geithner has said he will be able to employ various ‘extraordinary measures’ to keep the government operating until sometime early next year. Geithner would need to use these measures if Congress, as expected, fails to tackle the debt limit by year’s end.” (Associated Press)

As if the regular measures weren’t enough, we get more of the “extraordinar” ones?
