    Were you unable to answer my question?

    Do you think the US will stop paying its bills if the one term Marxist president Obama does not get more tax money and the opportunity to borrow trillions more?

    When your bills exceed your revenues you start cutting people. Let us begin with the extra-constitutional departments. Education has to go. Close it. Sell the furniture. Sell the buildings. It will bring in revenue and will lower the requirement for monthly outlays.
    Next close the EPA. It is totalitarian. It is extra-constitutional. Repeal all of their regulations. Again, let all of the people go and sell the buildings. That will bring in even more revenue and will lower the monthly outlays. Next, close the Food And Drug Administration. Completely.

    And as the investments come due pay them. NO big deal. Cut the size of the federal government by about half and the problem is solved.

    Your assumptions are wrong. That is why you fail.

    LOL! If we ever have a Marxist president I'll answer your questions about him or her then. So far, the US has never even had a liberal president, much less a Marxist!

    I think you would need two tests. One for liberals and one for the real Americans...
    It is not just a matter of politics. One requires an understanding of history, a bit of science and some problem solving abilities.

    It would be interesting to see what you come up with.

    Well no. It gives the government opportunities for more mischief. The government can pay its debts. It will have to reduce the size of the federal government to live within its means. I think about half of the current Czars and their departments could go and it would be a net positive for all Americans, but especially for those who are inclined to be productive.

    You left out the part of producing less in order to bring in less revenue.

    You have a lot to learn about rightwing business mgmt

    Why yes! If I need more profit to pay my bills, the first thing I do is cut employees who earn a profit for me!!

    I think you would need two tests: one for Americans and one for that peculiar group who wants to deligitimize a large section of the country's population by labeling them not-real-Americans.
