Mnuchin-Congress-must-raise-debt-ceiling-while-approving-Harvey

While Mnuchin had previously said the final limit to raise the debt ceiling was September 29, on Sunday he said that the deadline has gotten closer due to the unexpected spending on Harvey aid. But the letter makes it clear that the emergency spending would accelerate the timetable for raising the limit and conveys the idea that failure to pay obligations could imperil essential government services when residents in Texas need the help.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Sunday that he and President Donald Trump want to tie federal aid for Hurricane Harvey recovery to legislation raising the debt ceiling. The White House is said to want to extend the debt limit to move back the specter of a USA default until after Congress can address funding for the full fiscal year and the Trump administration's tax-overhaul efforts.

"That sends all the wrong message: 'Let's go ahead and increase the debt ceiling, and by the way, while we're doing it let's go ahead and spend another $15, $20 billion?' That's not to undercut the importance of Harvey relief".

Detroit Tigers trade OF Justin Upton
So far this season, Upton has accounted for 28 home runs and 94 RBI while sporting a.379 wOBA, his highest since the 2011 season. Reports are that the Angels have dealt pitcher Grayson Long and a player to be named later to the Tigers for Upton and cash.

The government's cash reserves are running low because the debt limit has actually already been reached, and the Treasury Department is using various accounting measures to cover expenses. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, however, Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday that the deadline could move up a few days.

If Congress approves the relief but additional money is not borrowed, "we're not going to be able to get that money to the state".

He added that Trump and his first objective right now is for the people of Texas.

Trump tweeted last month that he tried to tie the debt ceiling legislation to a veterans reform bill, but top Congressional Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConell had not acquiesced. "So we need to put politics aside".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a joint statement that Democrats will work with Republicans for a deal on the debt ceiling and Harvey money.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said on NBC News' "Meet the Press" that Harvey funds will "likely" be combined with a larger bill, but he said indicate what it will be.

Admittance of refugees in 2015 was an`humanitarian exception'- Merkel
Independent journalism is a basic pillar of democracy that can "never be questioned, even when it is uncomfortable", she had said. Opposition has been particularly staunch in her home region in former communist east Germany .

Karen Waltmon, 58, who was returning to her home in one of the neighborhoods, said she wondered if parts of the city would have to be razed. "I think we may be in a situation where the administration believes we'll get more economic growth than perhaps the models that come out of Congress".
