brushing up on debt ceiling history, NPR back in 2017
It keeps on coming back like a bad penny: Congress’ fight over whether to raise the “debt ceiling.” That’s the limit on how much Congress can borrow to run the federal government. Where did the idea come from and how big is the debt now? NPR senior political editor and correspondent Ron Elving explains.
in 2013, NPR also came up with

So, I’m hearing that Santos can “chew and walk gum” at the same time.

Sure looks like we’re gonna learn a lot more about the 14th Amendment. Might be the only way out of this.
Craig – I have been thinking about that ol’ Amendment and what the court, formerly known as supreme, might do to it. There is the remote possibility that as it is a written Amendment they would consider it original and provide a judgement, or possibly flick the writ of certiorari out the window leaving the gqp without a path to block its use.
All Uncle Joe has to do is order Treasury to pay our bills. A lawsuit surely ensues, but who has standing? That’d be an easy out for the courts, either that the plaintiff doesn’t have standing, or that it’s a purely political question between Executive and Legislative branches. Of course, plaintiffs could request an injunction against the president while courts resolve the issue, but that’d be a stretch, doubt courts would be keen on taking the blame for defaulting the naton. All in all it’s an interesting constitutional issue to test, especially if it has the effect of delaying default until courts decide.
The fault lies with Republicans, who are all to happy to hurt regular Americans in order to continue giving tax breaks to the wealthy/corporations who, in turn, regurgitate a bit into their gaping maw.
Every election, I hope they lose every election.

There had to be a “reason” for taking away so many boxes of classified material from the White House and then hiding them and refusing to give them up. What could that “reason” possibly be, for a gangster who measures his own self-worth totally in terms of MONEY. Hmmm. Mystery, right?
There are certain things I don’t understand. One is HTF a black politician South of PA could possibly be a Republican.
Tim S. is in a great position to stand up to the Monstrosity and still land at least the #2 spot. Goops will love him the same way they already love Uncle Clarence.
