Washington (CNN) –- Now, with only a week to go before the Treasury Department’s August 2 deadline for raising the debt limit, I must confess I am getting increasingly gloomy. I’m very worried no deal will be reached between President Obama and the Republican and Democratic leadership in Congress.
There may be some serious backroom talks going on to achieve an agreement. I certainly hope there are. But all I see in public is a lot of political posturing. If there’s no deal, there will be default, and the consequences will be awful for all of us.
