    1. Democrats cave, or
    2. Country thrown into depression, extremely wealthy people weather it fairly well, and the rest of us live very dismal lives for many years to come, or they'll start another war to make up for it.

    My suggestion is that Democrats sue claiming that the enforcement of the anti-deficiency act is inapplicable here since they just voted to pay federal workers back, and the spotty implementation of the act in the past makes enforcement here unconstitutional.

    Or, ok Republicans, you want to put old law on the table, highly unconstitutional, but fine have it your way. But, then we put all old law on the table. Starting with the Patriot Act, we don't like it, so it's gone. Same with the Deficit Reduction and the Bankruptcy Reauthorization Acts of 2005. Gone. Let's get rid of NSA spying, and restraints on leaking about spying. The Sedition Act from WWI needs to go too. And, we need some real stimulus, so all the stuff you forced out of the 2008 and 2009 stimulus acts, back in. Heck, if they're going to talk then everything needs to be on the table, not just stuff they want.
