An agreement between President Trump and Democrats for a three-month extension for the debt ceiling means Congress temporarily ducks a political debate. But the recurring battle will surface again in December. What could happen if we don’t raise the debt limit? Lisa Desjardins explains the history of the debt limit and how it works.

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from |

Anyone who has ever borrowed money can relate to the debate over raising America's borrowing limit. People who have reached their limit can try to ask their bank to increase it, and go deeper into debt. Or they can cut their spending and try to get their finances under control. Or they can do both. Either way, they have to keep paying their bills. If they default on their debt, that only makes it harder and costlier to borrow in the future. In July, President Obama and congressional leaders held hours of sometimes tense meetings at the White House. Opposition Republican leaders agreed on the need to raise the borrowing limit by August second or risk the nation's first default. The argument was over how to cut deficits. Most Republicans oppose any kind of tax increase. Most Democrats in Congress oppose big cuts in government spending, especially social programs for retirees and the poor. Jerry Webman is chief economist for OppenheimerFunds, an investment company. He says, "The central issue is how the US is going to bring its federal budget back down to a sustainable deficit level." He says the debate has deep roots in the Constitution. "The...

3 Reasons Why The Debt-Ceiling Debate is Full of Malarkey

All anybody in Washington can talk about these days is the debt limit or debt ceiling -- the total amount of money the federal government is authorized to borrow at any given time. After a decade in which spending increased by more than 60 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars and the debt limit was raised no fewer than 10 times, the government is about to max out its $14.3 trillion credit line, leading to fears that Washington is going to default on its bonds, stop cutting Social Security checks, and destroy the economy more than it already has.

But the current debate over the debt ceiling is full of malarkey for at least three reasons.

1. August 2 is a phony deadline. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has pushed back the drop-dead date when the U.S. finally reaches its limit a bunch of times already: March 31, April 15, May 31 were all cited as deadlines before August 2 was inked in as Armageddon. But this time, he means it, man, really.

2. Reaching the debt limit is not the same as defaulting on our debt -- which would indeed be catastrophic.

Think about it: You can max out your credit cards but as long as you keep paying the minimum amount due each month, your creditors don't go crazy. Interest on the debt is a small...

From VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report.

There has been a lot of talk about the "debt ceiling" in the United States. The debt ceiling is a legal limit on how much the federal government can borrow. Political disputes over that amount have concerned investors in recent weeks. American lawmakers must negotiate a new debt ceiling every time the federal debt reaches that legal limit. National debt grows when a government spends more money than it has available. Governments offer bonds and other investments to raise money to pay for this spending. In return, the government promises to repay, with interest, the investors who buy these securities. The financial demands of World War One led American lawmakers to establish a total debt limit. In 1917, Congress agreed that the president could borrow up to a set amount without seeking approval. Congress has agreed to change the debt limit 10 times since 2001. But the major parties may disagree on spending levels or on the need to borrow to pay for government operations. Other nations buy United States Treasury securities because they are considered the...

What is the debt ceiling that we keep hearing about? For that matter, what is the federal debt, where does it come from, and how big is it? Does the debt limit actually limit the debt? What would happen if Congress failed to raise the debt ceiling? And what does the debt limit have to do with tight pants?

President Obama issues a strong warning to Republicans over the US debt ceiling.

President Barack Obama demanded that Congress quickly raise the US federal debt limit and warned that he will not allow the Republican opposition to "collect a ransom for crashing the US economy," as he set out a tough negotiating position on an issue that threatens to shut down the American government.
Mr Obama displayed the get-tough stance toward Congress a week before he is sworn in for a second term.
Democratic critics of the president in his first term had voiced serious reservations about his willingness to give ground to Republicans on the debt ceiling issue two years ago, after a huge partisan fight resulted in an unprecedented downgrading of America's credit rating and left in place across-the-board tax cuts established during the George W. Bush administration.
This time around, President Obama said Republicans who want to dramatically cut spending in return for raising US borrowing limits "will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy."
"The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip. And they better decide quickly because time is running short," Mr Obama declared, insisting, "We are not a deadbeat...

President Obama gave the perfect analogy for the ongoing Republican inaction in raising the debt limit: "pay your bills".

"Chuck, what I'm saying to you is that there is no simpler solution, no ready, credible solution, other than Congress either give me the authority to raise the debt ceiling, or exercise the responsibility that they have kept for themselves and raise the debt ceiling. Because this is about paying your bills.

Everybody here understands this. I mean, this is not a complicated concept. You don't go out to dinner and then eat all you want, and then leave without paying the check. And if you do, you're breaking the law. And Congress should think about it the same way that the American people do. You don't — now, if Congress wants to have a debate about maybe we shouldn't go out to dinner next time, maybe we should go to a more modest restaurant, that's fine. That's a debate that we should have. But you don't say, in order for me to control my appetites, I'm going to not pay the people who already provided me services, people who already lent me the money. That's not showing any discipline. All that's doing is not meeting your obligations. You can't do that.

And that's not a credible way to run this government. We've got...
