The United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has warned that the U.S. risks running out of money by October 18.
Ms Yellen’s warnings came as Republicans in the Senate opposed an increase in the borrowing limit.

Ms Yellen repeated her warnings when testifying before the Senate banking committee, saying a default “would undermine confidence in the dollar as the reserve currency, and the interest payments of ordinary Americans on their mortgages and on their cars and on their credit cards would all go up in line with higher Treasury borrowing costs.”
On Monday, Republicans in the Senate voted against a bill slated to raise the U.S. borrowing limit.
