Treasury Secretary Jack Lew huddled with Senate Democrats at lunch on Thursday, telling them not to negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling.
Lew reminded lawmakers that the nation’s ability to borrow officially ends Feb. 7 and that while the Treasury was able to buy months of time in the past, its toolbox of “extraordinary measures” will last less than a month this time around. Lew has said the government could miss a payment by the end of February.
“He was just confirming that we need to pass a debt ceiling in February. He said he have to pay our bills and you don’t negotiate over that,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said.

More cash for the government to blow without 'raising the debt limit.'
