    Obama's toast. Al Franken went on the Senate floor to say we could pay SocSecurity. Why would Obama and Geithner lie about it?

    “About a month ago, the Bipartisan Policy Center briefed members of the House Republican Caucus on the actual implications of the Aug. 2nd deadline — what we could pay, what we couldn’t pay,” Franken said. “…in the month of August, we could pay our debt interest, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, vendors for defense projects, and unemployment insurance — and that’s all.

    Of course Obama is lying... only the leftist whackaloons (and I'm not certain they really believe it) have bought into Obama's despicable scare tactics. The assumption that every dollar of federal spending is necessary is idiotic.
