The crucial question about raising the federal debt ceiling is: What happens if Congress doesn’t? That is, what happens if Congress defaults?

La discusión entre el gobierno de Trump y sus críticos sobre una tasa de crecimiento económico sostenible suscita profundas preguntas sobre el futuro de Estados Unidos. ¿Ingresamos en un período prolongado de crecimiento económico lento?

If you haven’t paid attention, here’s a brief overview of the debate.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois have introduced a new DREAM Act. Oh boy. I really wish they hadn’t done that.
There are many ways to evaluate the Trump presidency at the six-month mark. What I am struck by is the path not taken, the lost opportunity. Donald Trump had many flaws, but during the campaign, he tapped into a real set of problems facing America and a deep frustration with the existing political system. Additionally, he embraced and expressed -- somewhat inconsistently -- a populism that went beyond the traditional left-right divide. What would things look like at this point if President Trump had governed in the manner of a pragmatic, jobs-oriented reformer who was relentlessly focused on the “forgotten” Americans of whom he often speaks?
The Venezuelan crisis is not a myth. Just take a look at the numbers of Venezuelans seeking asylum throughout the world to understand that it is easier to abandon everything than to succumb to the Bolivarian Revolution.
House Republicans, who are now deliberating the government’s 2018 budget, pledge to eliminate deficits within a decade. Well, good luck with that. It must be obvious that chronic deficits reflect a basic political impasse that can be broken only if majorities in Congress do things they’ve refused to do: trim Social Security benefits; raise taxes significantly; control health spending. There is a giant mismatch between what Americans want from government and what they’ll pay for with taxes.

Mensaje a todos esos que en Puerto Rico se rasgaron las vestiduras escandalizados, según ellos, por las piedras lanzadas --sabrá Dios por quién—durante la marcha del 1ro. de mayo en San Juan, y que son los mismos que trataron de restar importancia a las 200,000 personas que protestaron pacíficamente las extremas medidas de austeridad y la junta imperial de control fiscal que decide su futuro: ustedes, o vergonzosamente desconocen la realidad de su nación o han sido cómplices en su creación.
Puerto Rico on Wednesday sought relief under a law enacted to help the United States commonwealth restructure its massive debt load, paving the way for what could be the largest-ever bankruptcy case involving a US local government entity.
Message to all those self-righteous individuals in Puerto Rico who made a show of being scandalized by the stones thrown –God knows by whom—during the May 1st march in San Juan, while minimizing the 200,000 people who peacefully protested the extreme austerity measures and the imperial federal control board deciding their future: You must either ignore your nation’s reality or be complicit in its creation. In either case, shame on you.
