Debt ceiling crisis and you

Chaos. Catastrophic. Apocalyptic.

Economists have thrown out some heavy words to describe what would happen if the U.S. defaulted on its credit. But what does it really mean for you? CNN's Tom Foreman looks at what could happen to your wallet, your home, your job, and your retirement if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling before its October 17th deadline.

    Wolf, now that the President's approval ratings have hit an all time low of 37%, will you talk about it for three hours like you did with President Bush? You know, his policies are a failure etc. That went on for three hours and was your leading topic.

    Just curious. David.
