- The government deal on the debt ceiling is coming to an end next month, and there is about to be a great deal of noise about it. But, as SHTFPlan.com’s Mac Slavo notes, while the system is most likely to simply pass the buck around again, things may have finally reached the point where the road cannot be stretched further out ahead.
