MSNBC's Richard Lui Acts Out The Debt Ceiling (VIDEO)


The words "debt ceiling sound like Greek to a lot of people," Lui said. So please, MSNBC, translate it into layman's terms for us.

"As spending, me, right here, has gotten so big, and now, as you were just mentioning, there's not much space left," Lui said. "Many think my head, or spending, will hit this ceiling in the coming months."

Whew, thanks for clearing that up.
