Three Video Explanations of the Debt Ceiling and a 14th Amendment Question

Earlier today Keith Hughes sent me a link to his new video The 14th Amendment and the Debt Ceiling Explained.

What the video lacks are visual aids (I still think it's worth sharing with students for the part about the 14th Amendment). If you want to give students some visual explanations of the debt ceiling, take a look at the three videos embedded below.
