So, answer the question. Is the current govt shutdown a "technical" default? (Under your rules it is since we are reducing govt outlays by furloughing workers, shutting down services, etc)
Let's assume you aren't a COMPLETE moron and say no it isn't.
Now explain to all of us why it WOULD be a default (technical or otherwise) to expand the current govt shutdown until our revenue exceeds expenses? (and NO, to do so you do NOT have to touch any obligated payments such as debt service, social security , etc)
(for the record no one is advocating this, but we would like to hear you defend your ridiculous position)
You have a cartoonish view of how the Treasury works and how government fund flows actually happen.
