    Go over the cliff, it's the way we win.

    Maybe someone can answer this, if we go over the cliff and have substantial new revenues from the expired tax cuts, plus the sequester savings, why would we need to raise the debt ceiling?

      Bills to be paid and with payment restricted by having hit the debt ceiling become a problem the day the debt ceiling is hit. This year.

        problem.

        So defer payment to the military for as many months as necessary or as Bush did, take war spending off the books, problem solved

          businessmen doing DOD work who want to be paid on delivery and who are R constituents, and all the states which depend on the salaries of military on bases they worked hard to get placed there, being spent locally. And I'm not sure there's any more SS money in the trust fund to steal and hide the expenditures.
