Meet the 14th Amendment this Tuesday

by Vince

You may wonder, what would happen if the hours roll by Tuesday and there still is not a resolution to our debt ceiling quagmire? In comes the ace in the hole for Barack: the 14th amendment. This is a sigh of relief (as well as a back door escape hatch) in the face of Republican nihilism. Even Bill Clinton has thrown his hat into Obama’s corner:

As Bill Clinton, another former professor of constitutional law, recently declared, if he were president, he would invoke the Fourteenth Amendment to raise the debt ceiling “without hesitation, and force the courts to stop me.”

  1. Using the 14th Admendment sounds like a plan to me…….if Congress can’t get off their “duffs” and get the job done Obama needs to do what he needs to do to make this debt ceiling issue go away. One more thing……if the debt ceiling does not get raised, the first people in line to NOT get paid by the Federal Government should, without a doubt, be the members of the Congress.

  2. I need to say I’m impressed. It’s not very often that I encounter a weblog that is both educative as well as amusing. Just want to let you know that you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your suggestion is excellent. Thank you is all I can say !
