Wow, did you take a stupid pill today? The debt ceiling is the PERFECT opportunity for the Republicans to unilaterally draw a line in the sand and stop the madness. There is broad public support for such a check on out-of-control spending. This is the most powerful nuclear weapon against a ravenous-spending Obama, and the Republicans would be fools to pass it up. You may think a catastrophic debt does not require drastic measures, but that's proof you're insane.
