READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Last night Piers Morgan took a look at the debt crisis and where negotiations currently stand. He talked with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to see if the president thinks Congress will pass a deal before the August second deadline. "We are confident – the president is confident – if you will – that sanity will prevail."
Piers also talked with Republican Senator Pat Toomey who is hopeful Congress will solve the crisis before it is too late. "I hope we can find a solution that will allow us to raise the debt limit," he said, "and avoid the disruption that would occur if we don't raise the debt limit."
