DC Private Ambulances Fail To Speed Up Dragging Emergency Responses

An ambulance is seen in front of the US Capitol October 16, 2013 in Washington, DC. US lawmakers embarked on another day of high-stakes political brinkmanship Wednesday, battling to scrape together an eleventh hour deal to protect Washington's battered financial standing. At midnight (0400 GMT), the US economy will sail into uncharted waters and the Treasury will no longer be able to guarantee it will be able to meet its obligations and avert a devastating debt default. The only way to avert this peril, which could send global markets into turmoil and threaten another recession, would be for Congress to agree to raise the US government's $16.7 trillion debt ceiling.
