Treasury sets Oct. 17 debt limit deadline (Posted on 9/25/13 at 9:51 am)
quote: Congress must agree to raise the nation’s debt ceiling by Oct. 17, the Treasury Department said Wednesday. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had previously set a more hazy deadline of mid-October for lifting the $16.7 trillion limit.
quote: Because of lower than expected revenues, Lew said, the Treasury would only have around $30 billion on that day. The federal government can owe up to $60 billion on any given day, Lew added.

I hope it's really bad. I've already got it all planned out. I'm gonna be a black market smuggler. Trading only in gold and silver. I'll be like pirate. Living in the grey area between right and wrong. It's gonna be awesome.
