you miss the point

This is a political play. It keeps Obama and his folks from screaming that the Republicans are "holding the economy hostage" by making sure we don't default when we hit the debt ceiling. Tax inflows are enough to pay interest on the debt, and medicare/ medicaid/ SS, SO.....If we prioritize the interest payments then that give Obama and his folks the choice of cutting the waste and military overspending, or cutting medicaid/medicare/SS. This would back the Libs into a position where we not only get spending cuts, but the right spending cuts to balance the budget without hurting the economy. Seriously, I expect more thinking from the folks here at the Daily Paul then the hysterical reaction you just typed up.
