Spotlight: The Debt Ceiling

  • 30 million families could stop receiving President Biden’s Expanded Child Tax Credit, passed earlier this year through the American Rescue Plan.
  • Seniors could miss social security checks. Without social security, almost 22 million Americans would fall into poverty.
  • Veterans benefits could be delayed, and military service members could stop receiving paychecks.
  • Our country’s credit could be downgraded, spiking interest rates. That could raise mortgage, car and credit card payments.
  • The stock market could plummet, hurting 401ks and other investments.
