Understanding the debate over whether to raise the federal debt ceiling is no easy task. So All Things Considered is inviting listeners to write in with their questions. And the show will answer some of those questions on air next week.


The debt ceiling debate isn't just politically charged. It's complicated and, at times, confusing. If you have questions, we'd like to answer them. So tell us what you want to know about the process, the politics or anything in between.


Just go to and click on Contact Us and then please put debt ceiling in the subject line, and we'll answer some of your questions next week on the program.
