If the $31.4 trillion debt ceiling isn’t raised by the June 1 deadline, the U.S. Department of the Treasury won’t have enough cash to pay all of its bills. It would then likely focus on maintaining its payments on the debt interest to preserve the U.S.’s creditworthiness, said David Wessel, director of the Brookings Institution’s Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy. That means payments to Social Security and government contracts, among others, would stop.

“If it stretches on for more than a couple days, it’s going to be terrible for the economy,” Wessel said. “Everyone will get paid eventually, but we don’t know how long eventually is.” …

Government contractors need to prepare

A default would be calamitous to U.S. businesses, especially given the number of additional government contracts brought about thanks to Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, said Robert Hockett, a law professor at Cornell Law School. …

Father, direct our Congress and our President at this time. May our leaders look to you. I would pray that we would see the foolishness of continually raising the debt. Help us to learn to live in the bounds of what we have as a country. May an agreement be reached so that we will not default.
