Debt Ceiling

Air date 07/15/2011

We're in Day 4 of the debt talks, and both sides are so entrenched, the Senate Minority leader has suggested a longshot to break the logjam: Give the president the power to raise the debt spending limit to $2.4 trillion, provided he makes corresponding cuts.

Democratic Congressman Bennie Thompson says Mississippi could be hit HARD by certain spending cuts.

On the other side of the debt ceiling issue is the Mississippi Tea Party.  Chairman Roy Nicholson tells MPB's Ezra Wall there's not much difference of opinion among Tea Party Mississippians.
