  •  Well, there's room for schadenfreude too (6+ / 0-)

    b/c those rich people who've been bankrolling the GOP more than they have the Democrats are looking into the abyss, and they have the smarts (and the accountants) to figure out how much a default will fuck up the economy -- and hence their business dealings.

    Until now, they thought someone would pull the rabbit out of the hat and stop this nonsense. Now they are recognizing how rabid the Insane Branch of the GOP is, and are threatening to stop bankrolling them (at least, I think that's what I've been reading the past couple of days).

    Oh, and the ACA/Obamacare? It's good -- nay, excellent -- for business, and most business owners are eventually going to recognize that, as premiums come down.

    What would be EVEN BETTER for business (except health insurance companies) is single-payer, and why they haven't yet lobbied for it, I have no clue.
