Treasury extends debt ceiling window to Aug. 2

New York (CNNMoney) - The fallout from lawmakers' delay on the debt ceiling is getting real.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Monday that he would start taking "extraordinary measures" this week to keep the country's debt below its legal limit.

    The House folks like to work one week and take two off - put them on permanent leave-without-pay. That will help. Take away their benefits too. Give them a voucher for their insurance. Whatever amount they want to give us, give them that amount and say 'YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN". Bye bye.

    I can't believe that Limbaugh actually praised President Obama!!!!!!! I just about fell off my chair! Wow........ hell must have frozen over!

    I too, would like to THANK our Troops, U.S. Intelligence........... and the wisdom and decisiveness of President Obama! Also, considering all the criticism President Obama receives from the "Right"....... he was gracious enough to call George W. Bush & Bill Clinton to let them know about this mission. THAT'S CLASS!
