the_geek: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: There is no mechanism for this and it won't be invented before Thursday when the US defaults. Government debt instruments will be devalued and that will break the credit market.To be perfectly honest I'm not familiar with whether or not the debt payments take precedence over "mandatory" spending in the budget or not. That being said, you're silly to think that couldn't and wouldn't be handled by Thursday if need be.More likely though is they'll continue to pass CRs until a larger deal is made.Incredibly unlikely is a default.. like unfathomably unlikely.
DmGdDawg: TV's Vinnie: DmGdDawg: TV's Vinnie: DmGdDawg: TV's Vinnie: Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is still allowed to walk in public instead of wearing an orange jumpsuit.I hear more and more liberals parroting the same nonsense about Tea Party Republicans being guilty of treason, subverting the government or whatever. I realize it's hyperbole and all but it amazes me to hear people suggesting that elected political opponents should be arrested or are "terrorists" for opposing the President's agenda.2/10Oh...you were serious? Go ahead and point out what criminal law Ted Cruz has broken.1/10LOL, I'll take that as an admission you were just talking out of your ass.
