    why do you believe a default was in the cards?

    not even Moody's thought we were at risk for a default.... even if the shutdown continued or the debt ceiling wasn't increased?

    Hyde ...hes dead.

    interest on the debt is mandatory spending it must be paid by law, since the revenue coming into the federal government is 10x the debt payment ,its impossible to default.

    I think the american people were played... again.

    the math doesn't add up to a default... it never did.
    well, unless the administration were to purposefully default... but i don't think they would do that.

    80+ Republicans who should be facing a Peimary challenger next year in the House. Almost 30 in the Senate who should have the same issue the next time they're up for re-election. It's just that simple.
