Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, such a kidder, wrote a letter to K-Mac:
Dear Mr. Speaker:
I write to keep you apprised of actions the Treasury Department is taking in regard to the debt limit. In my letter of January 13, 2023, I noted that Public Law 117-73 increased the statutory
debt limit to a level of $31.381 trillion, and informed you that beginning on January 19, the outstanding debt of the United States was projected to reach the statutory limit. This letter serves to notify you, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 8348(1)(2), of the extraordinary measures Treasury began using today….
I respectfully urge Congress to act promptly to protect the full faith and credit of the United States.
“If your inbred, mouth-breathing hooligans from Possum Hollar can sober-up and put on their shoes,” Yellen did not say, “we can end this shitshow right now, asshole, before your vandals and miscreants destroy the world economy.”
