Are you relieved that Congress voted to avoid a debt default?

  • I am relieved that Congress voted to avoid a debt default.

    If congress had not reached a continuing resolution, it would have been bad for the country. It would have lowered our credit rating, and it would have caused a number of federally funded programs to remain closed. The agreement was a good idea, and it saved us all a lot of trouble.

  • Short-term solutions are not helpful

    As always, congress voted to avoid default only when it was under the gun, and only as a short-term solution. The deal pushed the decision date further away without fixing the problems of divisiveness that plague the current congress. I would have been happier if they had reached a compromise that would have a lasting benefit.
