Video Voices: Residents of Metro St. Louis Sound Off on the Debt Ceiling

People on the streets of our communities have diverse views on the down-to-the-wire debate in Washington, DC.

After a long debate in Washington, DC political leaders hashed-out a resolution to the debt ceiling problem Sunday night. 

The Huffington Post reported "President Barack Obama and Republican congressional leaders reached historic agreement Sunday night on a compromise to permit vital U.S. borrowing by the Treasury in exchange for more than $2 trillion in long-term spending cuts."

Patch wanted to know what people in metro St. Louis thought about the debt ceiling debate. We traveled to Main Street in St. Charles, Westport in Maryland Heights and The Loop in University City to seek opinions.
