    A lot of crap that the feds do can still be paid for....They're still taking in between $2 - $2.5 trillion this year.

    The whole "default" strawman is a total lie.

    Wouldn't that be up to the treasury because more money going out than you have suggests someone isn't getting paid.

    I voted for Obama. Where would the nation be if Ron Paul had won the Presidency in 2008?

    Well, was the video posted in the OP an example of a fair and balanced interview by Fox News? I think not, the host's agenda is obvious and the host kept Paul on point, when he moved onto territory which does not sit well with the ideology of the corporation, Paul was brought back on point - criticize Obama.

    Paul and Odd-dude declare thre is no crisis pending. Time will tell; and we'll see what happens in a little over a week. Or maybe as soon as tomorrow. It we lose our AAA rating Monday, or if the Asian markets react to Boehners walk negatively, things may change in a hurry.

    I generally like Ron Paul, but when he speaks to the base of the GOP (who else watches Fox and takes it seriously) he goes out there and that is why he'll never get the nomination for POTUS.

    That's not how it happens. The President can prioritize payments. If he wants to pay SS he will. If he wants to pay the defense dept he will (and I know he will, I just know) If there's no more money left to pay other gov't programs well tough luck, maybe we should have had em' in the first place. And printing money to pay for that will only inflate our currency and drive down our purchasing power, which is like a hidden tax.

    What happened when I experienced too many bills and not enough paycheck 3 years ago? I IMMEDIATELY stopped taking on more debt and prioritized payments. I paid off more than 14K in credit cards and thanks to 3 years of my own self imposed austerity I now have money to spend, invest and pay off my two houses early.

    Americans have been doing what Congress needs to be doing.
