This was in response to CicerosGhost's suggestion that it's possible to pay the interest on the debt without raising the debt limit, simply by cutting other government spending. He proposed cutting across the board, but I don't see why the President shouldn't make the cuts as painful as possible for Republicans who refuse to raise the debt ceiling in the first place. Oh, and Ghost, Medicare and Medicaid aren't subject to those cuts, only discretionary spending is.
