Treasury's Lew Says 'Time Is Short' for Debt-Ceiling Fix Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew on Monday pressed Congress to deal soon with the debt ceiling, saying the Obama administration has much less flexibility to avoid a crisis than in previous standoffs because it is entering the height of tax-filing season. Mr. Lew, speaking at the Bipartisan Policy Center, said "time is short" for a fix. In October, Congress agreed to suspend the debt ceiling until Feb. 7, but the government will be able to continue borrowing money to pay bills through sometime later in the month, Mr. Lew said. After that, it will be left to pay bills with only the remaining cash on hand, as well as incoming tax revenue. [WSJ]
