The debt ceiling debate is kind of umm...hmmm.whats the word... oh yeah thats it,moronic. At a time of record unemployment and a sluggish recovery the Tea party plan is to say no on a debt ceiling increasing in order to get rid of the regulatory arm of the government in one fell swoop. Putting aside the fact that i like to breath and this is a really bad idea that would constitute cutting 3,374,040 jobs from the economy over the next 4 months. in the end we would be at 20% unemployment with massive interest hikes and calls on the us dollar causing massive inflation. I am in favor of the president calling the unconstitutionality of the congressional plan and proactively raising the debt ceiling on his own (unconstitutional as that may be it is a far better option than playing chicken with a crazed lunatic).
