Poll question: Two weeks ago, Tim Geithner warned we'll hit the debt ceiling on 5/16. What happens then?
Geithner warns U.S. to hit debt ceiling by May 16
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/04/04/us-usa-budget...

Based on estimates last year from the International Monetary Fund, U.S. debt as measured against the size of the economy is higher than in France, Canada and Germany, but less than in Italy and Japan

Geithner said that while the debt ceiling projections could change, the Obama administration does not believe they could change in a way that would give Congress more time to raise the debt ceiling. He said Treasury would provide updated projections in early May.

*******

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
