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."
