As politicians in Washington D.C. fight like children in a sandbox that is too small, the nation waits for a deal that will avoid a national default.
By now, most Americans have probably heard the worst-case scenarios with hitting the debt ceiling: a dipping dollar, loan difficulties, a jump in interest rates. So, how likely is a worst-case scenario?
