    It would be truly insane for the GOP to push this angle when they already have the sequester about to trigger.  There is more than enough spending cuts in the sequester to make any austerity nut happy.  Balking on the debt ceiling will actually increase the deficit.  But keep in mind that we are not dealing with rational people in the GOP.  They may balk at the debt ceiling just to make their nut ball base happy.
