Nancy Pelosi and I Think Alike on 14th Amendment Solution to Debt Ceiling

About a week ago, I posted my opinion that the 14th Amendment should be invoked in avoiding the debt crisis.

Some of my DU friends disagreed. Since that posting, former Speaker and current House minority leader Nancy Pelosi has come to the same conclusion as I did.

Does this change any body's mind here?

1. It didn't change my mind because I already agree with her..

 

Just because the Republicans have the control of the House does not mean they are the whole Congress. What the Republicans want to do is threaten the U.S. economy and hold the rest of the nation hostage. They also want to threaten the world economy. I think the president has a duty to oppose the Republican House under the Constitution with the majority of the Country behind him. I view the Republican House as traitors and the people that sent them to office to do this. They have no power to impeach the President with the rest of the country and government behind him. It takes two thirds of the Senate to convict. So if the Senate is OK with the President's decision, he has the power to take action against the Republican House.

2. The only reason the Debt Ceiling is an issue at this time is the Republican Obstructionist have...

an agenda to diminish Obama and while they are at it get Social Security.

If it were not for those two things, we would not be hearing anything about the Debt Crisis!
