vpb: Cyclometh: I think until the 17th.  Once the house violates the 14th amendment by causing a default I think Obama can just ignore them and their debt ceiling.

If he does that we move into full-blown Constitutional crisis. The House would impeach, there still wouldn't be a functioning government, and the economy would probably take a gut punch.

No, we would move into a full blown Constitutioanl crisis when the House allows the government to go into default.

But if the House wants to impeach the president for acting to save the nation from the house republicans unconstitutional action, let them.  The senate will just aquit him and the Supreme Court will either not intervene or support the President because the only other option is allowing the economy to collapse.

Then a precident is established and the House will have pissed away one of it's historical powers.

I really think that the GOP will regret forcing a constitutional crisis and I don't think they will be able to shife the blame to Obama.


I think that's a reasonable scenario, but the POTUS will want to avoid impeachment.

Actually, if I were him I'd be embracing it. "You hillbillies want to impeach the first black President, the guy that brought affordable healthcare to the country, right after you shut down the government and threatened to destroy the world economy? OK, let's dance."

If it comes to it, can't we just remove all military defenses from the red states and invite other nations to nuke them? Two birds, one stone.

there their theyre: Stop bringing gun grabbing up as an example. Use higher income taxes, gay marriage for all, free abortions, but not gun grabbing. There are a lot of democrat voters who like their guns and any ban is unconstitutional anyways.


Wait, you mean I shouldn't use an example of one tiny faction of Congress trying to take something that the majority of Americans support, is already settled law, has passed Constitutional muster and doesn't even have the support of the rest of their own party?

You mean that's a bad example? Huh.
