Let’s not kid ourselves about the debt ceiling

I’m seeing stray reports that GOP House members are talking about shifting from the continuing resolution to the debt ceiling.  While I appreciate the never-say-die sentiment, this makes zero sense.

The debt ceiling is a bigger bomb than the CR.  If the Vichy Republicans are unwilling to have a little ol’ government shutdown over the CR, they will absolutely shit their pants at the prospect of hitting the debt ceiling.

It ain’t happening.  The CR is the only way we’re going to get any significant concessions.

    Tell you me dont believe this fairy tale that elected dim witts of either Party are serious about anything more than getting votes and more sweet heart deals for themselves. Congress is the theater of the Absurd.

    There is Zero chance Obama will sign any bill that does away with the only real policy he managed to get made into law in the long years he has been in office assuming of course the Senate doesnt strip out Cruz’s idiot passage which they had already said they will. Cruz and his supporters are playing for votes and nothing else.

    Except that we already hit the debt ceiling. Treasury has claimed that our national debt has been exactly the same, just shy of the nominal debt ceiling, for 3 or 4 months now. It’s all kabuki, and since it would be literally impossible to impeach the president or any of his political appointees with the current make up of the legislature, the executive can do whatever it wants regardless of how the law reads.
