  •  The question of whether you know the difference (0+ / 0-)

    between appropriations and finance is not rhetorical.

    That's what this is about.  Money has been appropriated based on the expectation that it will be financed because for us not to pay our obligations is unacceptable.  Minting the platinum coin is essentially a ceremonial way to finance our previous appropriations.  With a fiat currency, it's fine.
