President Biden Believes Pushing the Debt Ceiling Is Good For the United States, But Does It Really Show His Irresponsible Side? (Guest: Michael Letts)
Law enforcement veteran Michael Letts addresses the actions surrounding the debt ceiling, but also wonders where this will lead us in the future.
There’s been a lot of back and forth surrounding the “debt ceiling” that the United States is currently facing, but apparently the Senate has managed to find a solution – and President Joe Biden is likely to sign off quickly on it.
Biden has already faced immense pressure from his peers surrounding the debt ceiling, something that could have been concerning surrounding his re-election campaign for next year. By signing the bill, the federal government will now have its limit suspended on how much it can borrow through January 2025.
While that does make for an easy ride for Biden heading into the 2024 election (of sorts), it also leaves questions. How will the matter be addressed within a couple of years’ time? And, for that matter, what does this mean for the looming government shutdown, as well as how it could affect many Americans once it happens? Clearly Biden didn’t think about the long-term with this agreement.
Michael Letts, a law enforcement veteran with over 30 years of experience under his belt, joins us now to discuss the matter further. He is the President, Founder and CEO for InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. His insightful commentary on this issue promises an engaging and enlightening discussion.
- What do you think about the actions that have taken place surrounding the debt ceiling as a whole? Is a delay to January 2025 likely to spell even more danger for the country if not properly addressed?
- What does the decision mean for the Senate, considering the back and forth between the two sides that took weeks to finally resolve? What does it say about the lack of balance between Republicans and Democrats?
- What does this debt ceiling situation say on the importance of fiscal responsibility and the potential dangers of consistently raising the ceiling?
- What potential measures would you have turned to instead when it comes to saving the U.S. economic landscape as we know it moving forward?
- Are you concerned that Biden is paying more attention to something like a debt ceiling instead of the growing crime rate in several cities? Not to mention making zero progress on the “fund the police” bill that he pushed so long ago, which is resulting in less people wanting to be police officers?
- How will this decision affect the U.S. economic space as a whole? Could businesses or individual Americans be affected?
- You’re the creator of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. Tell us more about that, and why support for fellow officers is so important right now.
