"Interesting Next Few Days" Posted by TaroPatchII at TNT
TaroPatchII: Interesting next few days. Captured from "Removing the Shackles."
Bank Tests, SS Closed in US and Australia: This weekend
Earlier last week I wrote about "The "Debt Ceiling" aka: "special manouvers" of the Fed... I mean, "Treasury" " In the article I reviewed a few previous articles that have all been relevant to this moment and what seems to be the groundhog day template that we keep seeing over and over again.
Specifically I talked about the Debt Ceiling "Crisis" and about the coming banking closures due to "testing the system". These bank closures are purported to be taking place on Feb 15-16- this coming weekend. At the moment I was writing that article, Jack Lew had announced that the Treasury was going to be in serious trouble if the debt ceiling wasn't "raised" by Feb 27th....
Well very interestingly, yesterday at the drop of a dime, Lew put the Debt Ceiling mess to a vote in congress and they voted to Raise the Debt Ceiling without ANY strings:
It was commented on in various news reports that even Congress was caught off guard by the sudden vote and the Republicans had to seriously scramble to try to stop the vote from going through (without their extra rules).
Two days ago I was sent another very interesting news clip that I reported on Transpicuous News:
U.S. says Social Security computer outage to affect HealthCare.gov
Reuters- 13 hours ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Monday said people hoping to enroll in health coverage for March 1 may have trouble applying by Saturday's deadline because of a planned 62-hour maintenance shutdown of a Social Security Administration computer system.
The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), the lead Obamacare agency, said the shutdown will prevent applicants from verifying their Social Security numbers and other data through the federal website, HealthCare.gov. Those unable to enroll because of the outage can request special enrollment for coverage beginning March 1, CMS said.
The Social Security computer system will be down from 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) on Saturday until 5 a.m. EST (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, February 18, CMS said.
And it's not just the US!!! Austrailian Social Security will ALSO be closed this weekend!
