    •  The really good think about 5k coins is that (0+ / 0-)

      all we have to do is mint 500 of them and deposit them.

      It would break the back of the default crew.  It takes the gun away from the head of the hostage.

      I really don't think we'd have to mint even a billion dollars worth of them to force the Republicans to cave on the debt ceiling, since their refusal wouldn't really be leverage anymore.
