Only $26 bln of spending power left under the current debt limit



There is only $26 bln in spending power for the Federal government under the current debt limit.

(Figures are in millions $)



You can see the full statement here.

Not much talk about this and the markets continue to kite higher. Negotiations on the debt ceiling remain at a stalemate. Oil prices at $112 now, other sensitive commodities surging. Is a crash coming? It "feels" like it.

I can see a crash coming, but don't think the debt ceiling will precipitate the crash. The Republicans will do as the finance industry wants them to do and increase the ceiling...

Crash ?

You mean run on the banks as soon as they ( the republicans and tea partiers ) put a leash on Bernanke

If he cannot swell the reserves, even cash will be hard to come by.
