    We know that a large percentage of the Tea Party will show up to vote. Not so much with many of the "let's continue spending" crowd.

    Perhaps using the same "math" under which the government's expenditures could immediately be cut by some 40% and somehow the federal government could still meet all of its obigations, including those for which it would lack funding?

    Business leaders have come out and said that they will also "make an example" of Republicans if the debt ceiling isn't raised. Do Republicans not support business anymore?
    I believe business leaders will split on which party will be made an example of. A smart business person knows that the budget of the U.S. cannot continue on its current track. I believe they will support cuts in expenditures and not want their taxes increased.

    Really? Well, tell the Dems to get serious about cutting the deficits.

    It contrasts nicely with the Democrats' position...

    Do you want to die quickly, or slowly and painfully?

    That some elements of the Tea Party seek no debt ceiling hike whatsoever and are pressing Republicans toward that end represents another possible barrier to a deal to hike the debt ceiling.
    The Tea Party is the worst thing that has ever happened to the Republican Party.

    Sorry, but collectively, its policies are idiotic. Can anyone produce an economist that will tell you that it will be ok to not raise the debt limit? These yahoos somehow think this is ok, even desirable. The nation is driving in a car down a twisting mountain road with cliffs on both sides and no brakes, and these people think you can just turn the car hard to the right, drive off the cliff and we will all be ok. They are not adults.

    Though I don't see eye to eye with Republicans very often, at least the loyal opposition once brought intelligence to the debate. Now its just lunacy.

    And from Reuters:

    "You cannot play games with something this serious," Simon Johnson, former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, said at a congressional hearing.

    "Other countries that have tried to play these kinds of games with the financial market usually end up getting burned.
