Warren Buffett says if Congress fails to raise the U.S. debt limit, it would be its "most asinine act" ever.
But he told shareholders today there's "no chance" lawmakers will fail to do so, despite "waste of time" debates on Capitol Hill.
While Buffett doesn't want the nation to keep increasing its debt relative to GDP, he says there's shouldn't be a legislated debt limit to begin with, because circumstances change.
Buffett says the U.S. will not "have a debt crisis of any kind as long as we keep issuing our notes in our own currency." Inflation resulting from a "printing press" approach, however, is a serious threat.
