Latest update : 2011-08-03

US debt deal: but at what cost?

Today, the press and blogosphere have called the 74-page agreement between Democrats and Republicans to raise the US debt ceiling by 2.4 trillion dollars "a disastrous compromise", "the result of extortion" and even "a sugar-coated Satan sandwich" (by Democrat Emmanuel Cleaver). Laura Baines asks her guests if Obama has given away too much, and if such a divided Washington will able to deal with the major economic challenges ahead.
