The Chief of the US General Staff fears the consequences of a potential default for the Armed Forces.

A potential US default would have significant negative repercussions for the military, Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

“There can be no doubt that if we defaulted, did not agree on a debt ceiling, then this would have very significant negative consequences for the readiness, morale and potential of the US military, not to mention international reputational costs” he said at a press conference.
