CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Another daunting deadline looms as the Nation's ability to borrow money to pay its bills expires mid-October.
Wednesday’s CNN survey says most Americans think the debt ceiling, which is the legal cap on federal borrowing, needs to be raised.
While the bi-partisan battle over healthcare keeps the government shutdown, the deadline for Congress to raise that ceiling is October 17th.
Similar to opinions in the survey, one man in Chicopee told 22News he is frustrated with the government's inability to agree.
Scott Conway told 22News, "They are the ones that we are supposed to take the rules from. We put them there; they're supposed to be doing what we are asking them to do, not what they are arguing about. It's not fair to the little people."
The majority of Americans polled also think it is more important to raise the debt ceiling, than to delay the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
