That line would appear to be to relate to repudiating a debt, as in saying it's not validly owed for some reason. Rejecting the debt.

Defaulting isn't the same thing. Defaulting is an inability or other failure to pay a debt that is owed. Failure to raise the debt ceiling doesn't mean we repudiated the debt, or don't owe it, it's just a failure to pay it (for stupid reasons, but that's beside the point).

So, no, that clause of the Fourteenth Amendment doesn't make defaulting on our debts unconstitutional.
