  • Debt ceiling fight: CEOs say it's not time to play politics, Commerce Secretary says

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wrote in a letter earlier this week that the U.S. could default on its debt as soon as June 1. A default would certainly wreak havoc on the financial markets, and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo tells Yahoo Finance she's already hearing some early apprehension from executives. "When I talk to U.S. CEOs, there's already a lot of anxiety about the debt ceiling." But Raimondo adds that the executives she's spoken with have a message for lawmakers. "[The CEOs] have a view that it's not time to play politics - it's time to do the right thing. Every business pays their bills." President Biden has invited leaders of both parties for a meeting next week to find a solution. "The last thing the markets need and the economy needs right now is that kind of disruption," Raimondo says. Listen to Seana Smith's entire interview with Commerce Secretary Raimondo here.
