  •  The question is what kind of Executive Order? (4+ / 0-)

    An order to Timothy Geithner to pay obligations no matter what:  This entails what you described above, including possible austerity measures that can hurt alot of economically disadvantaged people, and hurt the economy overall
    Or, an executive order to Timothy Geithner raising the Debt limit by justification of the 14th Amendment, which I think would be the President's best move, because it is justified constitutionally, and it would be best for the economy, also, as well as the best for the economically disadvantaged, i.e. SS recipients, Medicare/Medicaid recipients....etc...

    GOP = Grossly Ostentatiously Preposterous
