    U.S. Cannot Constitutionally Default on Its Debt, Says Constitutional Scholar
    Thursday, July 07, 2011 - The United States cannot constitutionally default on its existing public debt even if the debt ceiling is not raised, constitutional scholar and attorney David Rivkin said during a Federalist Society news event. Instead, he said, the country should focus on the fiscal responsibility of new borrowing.

    No doubt autistic children will be denied treatment, the blind will have their dogs taken away, crack babies will be thrown in dumpsters and old people will have to eat cut-rate dog food.

    If you think that paying only the armed services salaries and the interest on debt means that the government is not defaulting, your crazy.

    How are you going to get arms and munitions, food and clothing for the military. How are the electric bills and fuel bills for the military bases going to be paid?

    Not to mention social security and medicare payments.

    How about government workers pensions?

    The list is endless, but the simple fact is: the governement owes money and the governement has to pay it's bills...all of them.

    We have over 700 military bases around the world. We can afford to close down some and bring home troops.

    We are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic that lives within its means, not an overstretched empire that is imploding on itself.

    Considering that they WASTE billions of dollars on non-sense--hopefully they'll start taking a hammer at that.

    Bullshit.

    I noticed that the "Constitutional scholar" did not , and could not, cite the proviso - by article, section and clause - which mandates that taxpayers bail out the bureaucratic scumbags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
