  •  It won't go to the Supreme Court. (0+ / 0-)

    It will be the excuse for the House to impeach.

    •  It will and Roberts will side with the liberals on (7+ / 0-)

      this one, everyone knows that once the Congress appropriates the money, we are obligated to pay it.  The Constitution says so.

    •  So what if they do (0+ / 0-)

      1. It would go nowhere in the Senate.
      2. It would be a political disaster for House Republicans.

      Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

      The Democrats are sitting at 201 seats. Fruitless impeachment shenanigans will be the end of the Republican majority.

    •  Obama has to Commit a Crime First (0+ / 0-)

      Actually, as fucked up as the repugs are, Obama wouldn't have to even commit a crime. Doing something that is constitutionally suspect and committing a crime are two different things.

    •  it'll be worth the fight (0+ / 0-)

      but they are not that stupid.

      impeachment is based on high crimes and misdemeanors so right wingers have no cause specifically because the 14th amendment gives the president the authority to protect the financial best interests of the United States.

      I also think even their right wingers now even trying to do what they can't would have a major impact on world markets.
