    The notion that they "will" raise the debt limit this summer is nonsense.

    They are playing chicken, but we are the only one on the railroad tracks. They are in the station house.

    They WILL NOT RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT.

    I didn't intend the above as a factual statement.

      think they are corrupt enough to not do it. (or do it which ever way you look at it)

      Wall Street will get the inside word and make money on the coming collapse.

      But the political result will be devastating.  The Dems can offer sensible cuts - to anything but medicare benefits.  When the arguments gets framed "medicare or economic disaster" the truth will be clear.

      Are there no prisons? No workhouses?
