Debt Ceiling Unconstitutional
This idea has legs. Tom Hickey pointed out a few weeks ago that the idea was getting a bit of attention. I thought that would be the last we see of the idea.
But people are looking at this closely.
Brad Delong calls it Plan B.
Mike Konczal seems to think it is viable.
I sure hope someone keeps this meme going.
[Update from Tom Hickey: People are keeping this going, and prominent conservatives are signing onto the idea. Plus, I forgot that this was THE 14th amendment. The 14th is the the one that abolished slavery, and made it clear that traitors to our great nation should not be allowed to hold any government power in the U.S.
Traitors…hmmm. Why would opposing paying the debts of the United States be so closely associated with opposition to human freedom, and being a traitor to the United States? It’s almost as though opposing paying government debt is strongly associated to being a traitor to the United States.]
