For today’s Debt Ceiling-themed episode, we’re joined by repeat guest Joe Lieber, Director of Research at Washington Analysis, an institutional research firm that closely tracks the goings-on in Congress. Joe offers his thoughts on the debt limit negotiations and the odds of a deal being reached, the surprising dynamics within the House Republican caucus, and which provisions are likely to emerge from a potential deal. Later he breaks down how Wall Street and Main Street are reacting to the impasse, what a default on US debt would look like, and the broader implications of growing debt and deficits to S corporations and other taxpayers.
