Wall Street's biggest CEOs weighed in to the nation's debt ceiling debate Thursday, firing off a letter to every member of Congress and the president of the United States urging compromise in the debt ceiling debate and action "this week."
The U.S. Treasury Department reiterated Wednesday that unless the U.S. debt ceiling is raised, the U.S. runs out of borrowing authority Aug. 2, and that higher tax receipts will not give it more time.
Does Wall street have a problem with President Barack Obama? Not if his fundraising or reelection efforts tell us anything.
Perhaps no group was as relieved this afternoon by President Barack Obama’s announcement of a new plan to resolve the debt fight in Washington as corporate treasurers.
"If everybody else is willing to take on their sacred cows and do tough things in order to achieve the goal of real deficit reduction, then I think it would be hard for the Republicans to stand there and say that the tax breaks for corporate jets is sufficiently important that we're not willing to come to the table and get a deal done," said President Obama.
