Arianna appeared Monday on CNN's 'Piers Morgan Tonight' to discuss the recent deal to increase the nation's debt ceiling.

"Here we have a major crisis in this country, we have a growth crisis, which means a jobs crisis and a debt crisis. We do not have a debt ceiling crisis, that was a completely manufactured crisis that we spent an enormous amount of time and energy trying to resolve," explained Arianna.

The larger problem, Arianna said, is that "there are an enormous amount of people in this country, Democrats and Republicans, who don't think that this deal is making the economy better."
