A Debt Ceiling Playlist: 5 Songs To Push Your Mind To The Brink
A Debt Ceiling Playlist: 5 Songs To Push Your Mind To The Brink Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (left), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (center), and Speaker of the House John Boehner are three key lawmakers in the government shut down and debt ceiling crisis.
Now that we've avoided a financial cataclysm, here's a suitable playlist for some of the swirling emotions of the past two weeks. Late yesterday afternoon, once it looked certain we would dodge financial cataclysm, another wave of emotions rolled through. Although I'm glad we narrowly dodged a crisis, I am still frustrated. Rather than crack another pencil in two or aim a few more mental daggers at Capitol Hill, I've funneled five strong feelings into a music playlist ? my five stages of congressional outrage, as it were.

Got any songs to soundtrack your shame, sorrow, relief or agitation? Let us know.
