"Sen. Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat with a knack for bucking his party, will not vote to raise the country’s debt ceiling unless the Senate moves on a deficit reduction plan, according to excerpts from a speech he will give this afternoon. ... The Treasury Department estimates that the federal government will reach its $14.294 trillion debt limit between April 15 and May 31." (03/21/11)
