Although politicians and the press have generally referred to what has been happening in the federal government since Tuesday, Oct. 1 as in a “shutdown” or “partial shutdown,” that did not prevent the U.S. Treasury from being open for business on Thursday—the third day of the “shutdown” and issuing $106.291 billion in new debt, according to the Daily Treasury Statement released at 4:00 p.m. on Friday. …

Either continue shovelling more debt dollars all the while, or shut the economy down, too.
