    If the debt ceiling is not lifted within the next 48 hours, he will produce an executive order eliminating the debt ceiling forever.  Also:  He if the government is not opened up within the next 48 hours, propose to write a second executive order to pay any person who is below twice the poverty line, who has gone unpaid due to the government shutdown 125% of what they were owed as restitution for Republican malfeasance.  And include any government program designed to service this segment of the population with the extra money to be distributed as the program managers see fit.

    Then, let the negotiations begin.  This one-way bargaining is just wrong.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
