50 Years Ago Today: The Debate Over the Debt Ceiling

50 years ago today, this headline in The Washington Post was apropos. Though today's rancor over the debt ceiling is far worse, it's a reminder of where we came from. Our debt ceiling is now close to $17 trillion.

This is a headline that’s still apropos today. Though, I’ll go out on a limb here and say that the rancor is far worse today when debating the debt ceiling. This was in The Washington Post 50 years ago today. Oh, for a frame of reference, our debt ceiling is close to $17 trillion today.
