On the Rocks's politica podcast


Sep 30, 2021

Why is the debt ceiling so important, what is it and why is the Republican party making a purely political move in opposing it?

Sen. Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans voted on Monday, September 27 to filibuster a bill proposed in congress to raise the debt ceiling. 

In this episode Scott and Cam offer a definition of the debt ceiling and why it's important to maintain the governments ability to pay debts it voted in incur in the past. 

As done many times on the On the Rocks Politica Podcast, our analysis is infused with a healthy dose of history, culture and good old fashioned humor.
