The Bipartisan Policy Center estimates the U.S. government could default on its debt as soon as Feb. 15, two weeks earlier than expected - meaning politics could take center stage again sooner than we were hearing last week. “It will be difficult for Treasury to get beyond the March 1 date in our judgment,” the center’s senior director of economic policy Steve Bell tells the Washington Post.

    Yes, yes, yes, we all know the U.S. is going to default on its debt in a few weeks. And, of course, the world will finally end, as predicted so often. This time, it's REALLY going to happen. Right.
