In this episode, Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget discusses how a lack of congressional oversight has led to unchecked spending, the financial crisis that would follow a default, and the slow-motion catastrophe that will come if we don't tackle the issue of deficit spending now.
