Interesting tidbits about the US debt ceiling

Filed under: Just Watching — Tags: — Jeff Fitzmyers @ 2:56 pm

Things to notice:
– The 3 general trends up each have a greater slope.
– The slope is getting much greater.
– The debt ceiling only rises.
– About 75% of the time the ceiling rises because it has to. Meaning those responsible seem to wait until the last minute.
– There is never a significant dip in the amount of debt before a ceiling raise. Meaning those responsible never try to reduce the debt.
