    This says that we must pay money we owe. It's the law. So ignore Congress, print more money, and pay the debts that we are required to pay by law. Let's then see what the Supreme Court says, because I am sure it will go there. And SCOTUS will have one hell of a conundrum. If they support the administration, then they violate the Constitution. If they go against the administration, then they violate the Constitution. It would be the only time in US history that one part of the Constitution violates another part of the Constitution, and this would be a Constitutional crisis. Better yet, Congress should just do it's job, and we can work out the details of this problem in the future.
    That is one of the stupidest things I have heard in a long time. The 14th does not empower the President to print money or incur debt.

    But it DOES require us to honor ALL debt that we have incurred. If Congress violates that provision, then the president has a good case to do it himself. Call it the Executive branch acting on a national emergency.

    Congress stay in DC for the 4th of July. Ops they cannot, Exxon is sending them on Junkets.
    Paul Ryan submitted a budget, something the democrats didn't do for fiscal year 2011 and the budget couldn't get passed in the Democrat controlled Senate. The House are the adults in the conversation.

    Neither side are adults. This is not "My way or the highway" time. It is time for Congress to do their damn job. Right now, they are worse than welfare loafers.

    The adults at the table are the House Republicans. Democrats want to cut the record budget 100 billion dollars and still deficit spend. Now if you want to go back to the 2008 Bush budget of 3 trillion dollars instead of the Obama 3.7 trillion and cut 100 billion from it then we can have a discussion.

    The blame goes to the President. If a deal isn’t done, he will not be re-elected, guaranteed.
