Senator Shaheen Warns About a U.S. Default

Senator Jeanne Shaheen says an agreement to raise the nation’s debt ceiling should not be a needlessly drawn out, politicized process.

She warns if the country defaults on its debts, seniors will not get their Social Security checks and that a wide range of local programs would be directly impacted.

Shaheen says Granite Staters should not bear the burden of a crisis that she claims was created by Republicans in Washington.

The U.S. Treasury has warned that without a deal by June 1st, the country could default on its debts.
