Since it appears that they will shut down the government Tuesday, that will hopefully give us enough time for public pressure to force a deal, averting a debt default.

The government shutdown will cause a hiccup in the financial world. Everybody who owns equities is going to get bruised.

A default, or the increasing likelihood that the Terrorist Party will cause one, will result in a massive wave of selling, hurting everyone in the country who has a retirement account or other equity investment.

This would be nothing less than a full attack on the integrity of the U.S., and if anyone other than Congress was planning on doing it, they’d be hauled off to a dark cell at Guantanamo.

Maybe the Wall Streeters will pour a ton of money into supporting anti-Tea Party, anti-Koch primary candidates in the reddest of red districts. Surely they can find a local in each place who’d be susceptible the sorts of incentives they could offer…

Which won’t do us any good at all until next year, by which time the damage will have been done, but at least it’s something.

Not gonna happen. The teahadis hate Wall Street as much as they hate Washington DC. And as I’ve pointed out the teahadis intentions are revolutionary. They want the country to burn.

In the relationship between Wall Street and the teahadis I wonder which one was the ‘useful idiot?’

I agree with you; the Teahadis want the country to burn down - it’s one of their driving goals.

I have a question for the legal literates here.

Do I correctly recall that the president has the constitutional authority to raise the debt ceiling if required?

re: #8 Achilles Tang

This is kinda like the war powers issue. There’s a legal argument to be made (based on the 14th amendment) that he does, but it’s not codified anywhere and has never been argued before a court.

re: #9 BishopX

Thanks, but has the war powers issue ever been argued in a court?

Seems to me that if the GOP forced a default and he did so, then they would have to go to court to have the country default, and the Supreme Court would have to rule for or against default.

Scalia/Thomas have already written their opinions in favor of it.
