What bills? Well, what about the debt payments? When you issue bonds with repayment schedules, those are bills that need to be paid, often for the next decade or more. Scheduled bills.
What about payments to hospitals and doctors for Medicare and Medicaid? Services have been rendered, bills will be due. Not to mention the fact that you are basically contractually obligated to cover those recipients in the future, unless you change the laws.
Social Security checks need to be issued. Monthly. Those are debt obligations. Those arent optional payments via law.
Defense contractors need their checks. People are under contract with the government - companies, organizations, etc. They need to be paid via law and contracts.
I could go on and on. But I bet its probably senseless, because you dont seem to have the slightest grasp on what the government does.

Apparently, you dont realize it... because you keep spitting out this 220 billion figure but never describe the other side.
Also, what happens when tax revenues nosedive when the economy tanks when we default? Generally, I like my government to be run by individuals who can think a bit longer term than what happens the next few weeks.
