As promised, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Monday night formally notified Congress that the United States has reached its $16.4 trillion debt ceiling.

In a letter to lawmakers, Geithner wrote that the government will take extraordinary measures to extend the deadline until Feb. 28, 2013.

That incompetent tax-cheating boob couldn't manage a lemonade stand. My gosh, this is painful to watch.
