It’s Wednesday, and here’s where we stand...
Well, it used to be months, now we’re looking at weeks – less than two, to be exact – until the Treasury Department says we’ll have to start writing I.O.U.s instead of checks to our creditors. So are we any closer to a deal? Depends on who you ask. The bipartisan “Gang of Six” presented a plan to about 50 senators and received a warm response. But there are some serious questions as to whether or not it’s even possible to put together a major deal before August 2nd. The likely alternative: a short-term stop gap. So yes, the budget will be a big topic again this Sunday.
From the country’s major political and policy issues to diplomacy on the global stage, State of the Union with Candy Crowley brings in the world’s top newsmakers and analysts to deliver the smartest, most comprehensive look at what matters most to you. Sundays at 9am and Noon ET.
