    Kindly produce a reference from a credible economist that agrees with this position, as it is generally regarded as a position held by the ill-informed. You believing it to be true does not make it true. If you can't produce such a reference then, if you are smart, you too will no longer believe it to be true.

    there is mandatory spending 63%........and discretionary spending 37% of the budget..

    mandatory is entitlement spending /interest on the debt.

    so since by law we have to pay debt interest and our government brings in about 250 billion a month its not possible to default, unless the WH, would seek to default on purpose.

    since the u.s. government does not pay down its debt, it is rising, from 5 trillion when bush II came in and ended with him at 10.5 trillion, .......then obama picked up and now at almost 17 trillion.

    I think the Republicans are smarter than that..... they don't want to have this happen again, even closer to the election. They played out the hand and lost. The Obama care debate is now substantially behind us.

    the math doesn't add up to a default... it never did.
    Which bills are you not paying??
    well, unless the administration were to purposefully default... but i don't think they would do that.
    Do you really think Obama wouldn't have used Constitutional Authority, prompting articles, which is still to on the House's agenda ?

    it does not take a scholar......the u.s. took in 2.7 trillion in revenue for 2013, on average thats over 200 billion a month, our debt payment is about 25 billion a month, ...how can we default since according to law, interest on the debt must be paid.
