I Have a Motion
Mr. Speaker, I move that the United States of America raise it’s debt ceiling limit to 20 (two zero) trillion dollars.
All in favor? Aye! All opposed? (chirp) In the opinion of the Chair the "Ayes" have it.
“Crisis” averted. Move on.
For those that don’t understand (how did you wind up on this blog?), it really is that simple. This “crisis” could be ended in less than an hour. Nothing has to change. No deals have to be made. “We hereby raise the debt ceiling.” That’s it. We are threatening the entire world’s economy because we can’t get 536 people to agree to six words about a mere technicality. It’s insane.
