    Does the govt. shutdown further complicate the default scenarios?

    Meaning that Treasury and other agencies that are involved with revenue and bill-paying are operating with skeleton staffs or are closed altogether.

    Even if we have a solution for funding and the debt ceiling by Thursday, how long will it take to get things back to speed and what damage will happen in the meantime? I think there's some bureaucratic inertia that will have to be overcome, in addition to getting the Congress to act.
