He's In! DeSantis 2024!!!

Who would be hit the hardest by a US debt default?
Social Security benefits, veteran payments on the line in debt-ceiling debacle
The U.S. government could default on its debt within a matter of days, jeopardizing payments to millions of Americans and businesses. 

The clock is running out for lawmakers to lift the debt limit. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen reiterated a warning Monday that it is "highly likely" the country will run out of cash to pay its debts in early June, potentially as soon as June 1.

"We have already seen Treasury’s borrowing costs increase substantially for securities maturing in early June," Yellen warned in a letter to congressional leaders. "If Congress fails to increase the debt limit, it would cause severe hardship to American families, harm our global leadership position, and raise questions about our ability to defend our national security interests."

The debt ceiling, which is currently around $31.4 trillion, is the legal limit on the total amount of debt that the federal government can borrow on behalf of the public, including Social Security and Medicare benefits, military salaries and tax refunds. Read more and see video here.

Casey DeSantis' Tweet Is the Perfect Preview For Her Husband's Big Event Tonight

This event was a long time coming, but with Donald Trump starting to solidify a solid lead for the 2024 Republican nomination—it’s go-time for the DeSantis camp. Trump’s rise in the polls is not because of anything positive, grounded through earned media from legal actions and CNN’s town hall event. GOP voters rightfully see the insane lawsuits filed against him, including the politicized Manhattan district attorney’s porn payment case against Trump, as a political witch hunt. It’s buoyed the former president’s numbers to a point where the timeline for DeSantis had to be accelerated if he had a shot at claiming the Republican Party crown. The Florida governor smartly skipped the exploratory committee, leaning on his staunchly conservative record, which secured him a landslide re-election win, to launch his 2024 bid.
His wife, Casey, tweeted a short video that was the perfect preview of tonight's big event, which will be hosted on Twitter with Elon Musk. It’s Ron DeSantis buttoning his suit jacket and heading out onto a stage. While it would be entertaining that he’d be announcing the death of Disney, we all know what’s happening. Using Twitter is a different kind of rollout, but I’m excited about it: Read more, see tweets and videos here.
