|1.||debt ceiling chicken|
August 8, 2011 Urban Word of the Day
A game where everyone in Congress refuses to agree on a deal to raise the debt ceiling until the last possible minute. It's like regular chicken, but instead of driving cars at each other, politicians are using the economy.
John Boehner: I don't give a shit if our country turns into Mad Max 2. I'm going to win this game of debt ceiling chicken.
Barack Obama: Challenge accepted!
