I'm all for a discussion/fight over the deficit. And there are ways to do it with a gun point at your head, if that's your thing (government shutdown, for one), but to use the debt limit...
Why would the government have to default? Why couldn't they just stop sending out SS checks instead? Or stop buying bullets and tanks for DoD?
