(THE HILL) The U.S. government reached its $16.4 trillion borrowing limit on Monday, according to the Treasury Department.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner informed congressional leaders in a letter Monday that the government has begun employing “extraordinary measures” to avoid default as it bumps up against the borrowing cap.
Geithner said his agency is beginning a “debt issuance suspension period.”
