Burn It All Down, cont.
As much as part of me wants to see a resolution in this government shut down and the coming debt ceiling, now that the GOP has set the timer on the bomb, any non-clean CR deal would be capitulation to blackmail and government terrorists.
Quite obviously, there is no way that those negotiations could take place within the short amount of time that Congress has to act on the debt ceiling, and it would be next to largely unsustainable for the government shutdown to continue for the length of time that such negotiations are likely to take.
Remember what happened when congress refused to hold up (bail out) the financial markets when it was obvious they were about to collapse? I’m sensing we’re going to see the same thing happen here.
