Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wrote to House speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) today to warn him that the Treasury will be unable to pay the government’s bills by early June, possibly as early as June 1. She wrote: “I respectfully urge Congress to protect the full faith and credit of the United States by acting as soon as possible.”
She probably should have written to the de facto speaker, not that it would have gone anywhere, either. <>very definitely sarcasm<>
Yeah there might not be a speaker of the house from mid June till late August.
Or a series of moments in time.
