"Meanwhile about 30 super idiots say it's no big deal if the country doesn't pay it's bills."

The only bill the country has to pay to avoid a calamity is the interest on the national debt, ie, bond interest.

There is more than enough income to pay all that, plus all SS, Medicare, Veterans benefits...and more....

We take in 180 billion a month in taxes....2.6 trillion a year in taxes....that hasn't stopped.

It's just the bloat doesn't get funded.

They'll have to wait a week or two.
