The United States could have less than $50 billion in cash in mid-October when the government exhausts its legal borrowing capacity, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said on Tuesday.

“Because things have come in a little bit slower … that number is smaller than 50 now,” Lew told Bloomberg News in an interview in New York.
