By requiring the Treasury to report to Congress about the national debt and ways to reduce it before the debt limit is reached, lawmakers can take steps to prevent the national debt from continuing to accumulate.
There’s already plenty of communication between the Dept. of the Treasury and Congress about the debt limit without this report being made a requirement, and lawmakers don’t need to be told how to reduce the debt.
