Bipartisan Policy Center’s Debt Limit Analysis

24 Jul

This may be the best report I’ve read on the Debt Ceiling impasse so far (FD: I haven’t read many in full, sorry).  This report as, among the ones I have looked at, the benefit of being fairly easy to read/comprehend, with as little legalese/technical jargon as possible.

**UPDATE: Thanks to the BPC, I’ve updated the link for the report, below, should work fine now**
