Democrats and GOP Clash on Debt Ceiling: How It Affects Your Money

As the US has officially reached its debt ceiling, negotiations between Democrats and Republicans have become increasingly tense. The White House is pushing for Democrats to bend on their negotiations with the GOP in order to avoid the drastic economic consequences of not raising the debt ceiling.

Meanwhile, Peter Schiff, an economist, has blasted the US debt ceiling drama as “the world’s largest Ponzi scheme.” He has suggested three assets as alternatives to the stock market amid the current market anxiety.

The US debt ceiling is the total amount of money the US government is legally allowed to borrow. If the debt ceiling is not raised, the US government will be unable to borrow more money and will be unable to pay its bills. This could lead to a government shutdown, a default on its debt, and could have a detrimental effect on the US economy.

It is unclear how the negotiations between Democrats and Republicans will play out, but the outcome of the debt ceiling drama could have a major impact on the US economy and citizens’ personal finances.
