Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

If the US defaults.... taxpayers may not get their tax refunds.

Now this is a topic we should really push. Both red and blue state citizens will NOT like this.
Republicans will be in hot water if their constituents don't get their expected refund.

I am posting this because of a post I read in LBN.

I'm going to go spread this on my Facebook. Just my tiny effort to make people think.

1. Obama also indicated that in the case of default Social Security checks wouldn't go out...

If congressional Republicans refuse to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed

3. Why?

I've heard that before, like the last time this happened, but the politicians never explain how a separately funded system would be impacted.

SS isnt spending authorized by Congress, it isnt in the budget.

8. The idiot-heads will still blame Obama, unfortunately.

They will not learn, even if they end up homeless and on the street they will still blame Obama.
