    Failure to Raise Debt Cap Would Idle 800,000 Workers, Group Says - Businessweek



    The study by Jay Powell, a former Treasury undersecretary under President George H.W. Bush, represents a challenge to Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and other Republicans who dismiss the risks of a government default.

    End result...of course the republicans are full of shit and the debt ceiling will be raised. They actually have dumb ass republican voters out here saying to not raise the ceiling. I wonder if Boner just laughs at his own morons. He KNOWS he is full of shit and will raise the ceiling. He HAS too just like it was needed 7 prior times with republicans in the oval office.

    If you're asserting that the U.S. Economy is dependent on 800,000 government workers, then we're in bigger trouble than I ever imagined.
