Jack Lew is holding a gun to our heads! /s
Boehner and Ryan will cave. Bet on it.
Seems the Beltway Libtards are out in force on the compost comments tonight.
... Lew plans to tell a Senate panel that he would do all he can to minimize the pain ....
Make sure Mr. Lew is under oath when he tells this lie.
A clear violation of the explicit provisions of the United States Constitution.
Impeach him immediately just for suggesting such a thing.
He’s a danger to the security and well-being of the people.
What a concept, even moderate GOP members would jump at the opportunity of a lifetime like this.
After hearing Sen. Johnson (R Wisconsin's split-tongued Senator) on Levin this evening, I'm really beginning to understand what an uphill messy brawl we're going to have, ridding the Party of such sell outs, who can only imagine themselves "making bipartisan agreements rather than refusing to cooperate!"
I’m also convinced that the only way to stop amnesty is to keep the shutdown/DL going for as long as possible.
Failure to make the debt payments even though there is far more than enough to do so should be an impeachable offense even for the most craven Democrats. I think they will enjoy threatening it, but would never do it. Obama will want to, but his people will tell him no.
Another govt punk that thinks he’s above the law and constitution.
An orange jumpsuit awaits you punk.
Sure, just raise it some more, what's the worst that could happen?
It is time.
That would send the correct message.
The Obots are LYING!!
Democrats to America: give us what we want or else!
What about EBT cards? Can they guarantee payment on those? I can damn guarantee you that they will! After all, the administration has priorities.
So Obama is going to order Lew to stop SS payments...
This hack is such a bad liar you can tell even he doesn’t believe his BS
Its vital that he be proven a liar by not increasing the debt limit
How the hell does that work? Defeatist thinking: Since not raising the DL does not bring Ø to negotiate, then raising the DL will bring Ø negotiate? Can't they get it thru their collective skulls that Ø wants the crisis of no DL increase?
“But Lew will also note that in an unprecedented situation in which he would be relying entirely on the erratic flow of incoming revenue, the economy would suffer and there would not even be certainty that the government could make all interest payments. “
Baloney. The only reasons why there would be a default on interest payments is either incompetence, or a choice to default on the part of Mr. Lew, or more accurately His Petulance. There is more than sufficient revenue to make interest payments. It’s a matter of prioritization of payments.
This is all about avoiding the instant balanced budget that a failure to raise the debt ceiling would cause.
By the way folks, a really good indication of what is going to happen will play out in the markets. Have you seen the stock market crater? Has the price of gold shot through the roof of late? Has the dollar dramatically dropped in price?
No, no, and no. While the maladministration is trying to jawbone the apocalypse, the markets aren’t buying it. Nor should we.
Then he will be in jail before it is all over.
