  •  Maybe you're right, with this (0+ / 0-)

    14th amendment thingy that's been posited but, up until now, it's been assumed that a deal HAD to be struck to get the debt ceiling vote.  

    SInce I agree with you that we would be much better off if we did nothing in terms of cutting, maybe things will play out that way i.e. there will be no debt ceiling vote and, hence, no cutting.

    From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

      If I were Obama, I'd use that route, and dare the Congress to stop him.  YMMV.

        excited for it to happen this way i.e "fuck you congress, I've instructed the Treasury to pay all debts without your stinkin' vote"
