    If the debt ceiling is not raised, a large number of programs will not have money to operate (Roughly 33% of the federal government spending is funded through debt issues)

    Armed people raising money?

    They perhaps wont go down to the local bank with an M1A1 asking for withdrawls will they?

    A large number of government programs need to be scrapped, anyway.

    Most likely quite true

    But if the debt ceiling is not increased all programs will be put on hold, including the military, medicare, the FBI etc.

    I don't think any one is arguing that many/all programs need to be cut/reduced. Not raising the debt ceiling however does not do that.

    No, they can end the wasteful programs and redirect those funds to more usueful ones. It's just like running a business.
