Obama: New Financial Crisis if Debt Limit Not Raised

Tuesday, 14 June 2011 08:43 AM

President Barack Obama warned Tuesday there could be another global financial crisis if the U.S. Congress failed to raise the national debt ceiling.

But in an interview with NBC's "Today" show, Obama also said he took Republican leaders at their word that they want to avoid such a situation and he expects a deal to increase the debt limit "in a sensible way."

"The full faith and credit of the United States is the underpinning not only of our way of life, it's also the underpinning of a global financial system. We could actually have a reprise of a financial crisis, if we play this too close to the line. So we're going be working hard over the next month," he said.
