It is not mentioned much, but I think BO will NOT let it happen. He's a smart man... he'll wait until 11:59 PM on Oct 16th or 17 -- i.e. 1 min before default, and raise the ceiling himself- House
be dammed !! He can and I believe WILL do it rather than let all his work to get us past 2008 Bush/GOP Great Recession go to schite. He'll get credit for saving the economy twice
in his term !
He's allowed to according to the 14th Amendment. He's keep that as his ace in the hole. We knew he was a good poker player !
Boehner and the GOTP are getting ready to get the royal flush
and it does not
contain face cards !!
BTW_ Love Tom Friedman !!
