  •  Congress borrowed when they ordered the spending. (3+ / 0-)

    They can't read or add?

    If this were new spending, it might fly.  But its not.  Its $ Congress ordered spent that the Exec could not constitutionally refuse to spend.  But now it wants to order the Exec to default on already incurred debt in violation of the 14th?

    IMO the quick one-time crises which ends with the debt ceiling in the dustbin would be far better than this death by a thousand cuts that also screws up credit rating (as it did) but does so repeatedly and without ever being resolved.
