Should we default on the nation's debts over Obamacare?

Take whatever position you want: that you want Obamacare repealed, that you want a couple parts of it repealed, that you want it to be delayed...

Whatever position you anti-ACAers adopt these days, and answer this question:

Do you believe we should default on our debts because Obamacare is being implemented in its current form?

Well, if nobody is willing to lend to you anymore, you don't have to worry about taking on more debt.

Yes, I know. I don't know why you're talking about default since that negotiation hasn't even begun. The brouhaha over Obamacare funding/mandate delays is related to the continuing resolution issue so I am confused.

That's not even true according to the Moody explanation.

I agree that Greece's problem is spending more money than they have. Defaulting was an end point. But we don't have a financial need to default now or any time in the near future.

By defaulting without financial need to do so, we would be volunteering to immediately accelerate all of our eventual problems to right now. That doesn't help anyone.

What is the default now number? If we knew what you know all this can be avoided. Share that number now

A decision to raise the debt limit does mean that the US will default on existing debt.

Regardless of the debt ceiling, if the interest payment on the debt is just under $400 Billion ($395,845,239,236.39 for 2013) and the US brings in $1.8 Trillion in tax revenue (2013 numbers and does not include $1 Trillion in Social Security receipts), there is no reason the government would not be able to service existing debt or go into default.

Default would only occur in the event the Administration decides, as is their stated policy, to default on existing debt payments in favor of other expenditures.

BTW: Social Security receipts still exceed disbursements, so the only reason SS checks would not go out is, again, because someone intentionally decides to withhold them.
