NPR’s legendary newscaster Carl Kasell recently explained the debt ceiling in his very own rap. [Look out Remy]

[listen here]

Here’s a little lesson,
Sit back for just a bit
Here’s how we make a dollar out of 60 cents
It started years ago,
In 1917
Congress set a limit
On the U.S. Treasury
It capped what they could borrow
Put a “ceiling” on the debt

As NPR pointed out, “be gentle people, this was a rush job.”

Hear the rap for yourself.
