Our word is good and has been for more than 150 years. There is absolutely no reason to default. And Republicans have been so good at getting just about everything they want from the normal legislative process and incredibly weak Democratic president, that they have no reason to complain about spending. Sequester? They got it. Slashing food stamps and taking the food out of the mouth of babes? No problem.
So, they don’t like “entitlements”, which is just a code word for Social Security and Medicare. Why not just keep on doing what they’re doing? Eventually, the Democrats will get tired and let the babies have their way and they’ll put one more tiresome difference between the parties to bed. Corey Booker will be joining the Senate in the fall, why can’t Republicans just wait for more pragmatic financier toe lickers hand picked by Obama’s DNC to come onboard?
But no, they can not wait. The best defense is a good offense or something like that. Why not just go at the problem whole hog and cause a lot of innocent people to lose money and demand that something be done, preferably in a hurry and without much thought of the consequences? That’s what we’re looking at.
It’s because Republicans like it this way.
