In this July 12, 2021, photo, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen prepares to speak during a meeting  at the European Council building in Brussels. Yellen is telling Congress that the Treasury Department will likely exhaust all of its “extraordinary measures” to avoid an unprecedented default on the government’s obligations by Oct. 18. In a letter to congressional leaders Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021 Yellen said her agency had been able to refine its earlier forecast that this deadline would occur some time in October.
