  •  A Flaw In Your Reasoning. (6+ / 0-)

    Republicans never need a reason to make political hay. If they don't have something, they'll just make something up.


    Lipstick on a pig!

    So to reason that a certain move should be made because the GOP could use it means that you accept the fallacy that they won't anyway. They will.

    Therefore the argument should be whether minting a coin to pay the debt that CONGRESS created is wise in and of itself ... not whether Republicans will use the issue to cry about.

    Remember, Republicans will cry about anything, and lacking anything, make it up. Victims, all their lives.
