Laughing Out Loud at Obama

G_O_W, Default on the debt. I've been thinking along similar lines. What if the Repubs pre-emptively announced that, once they gain a sufficent congressional majority, they would not honor any debt accumulated after 12/30/12? I wonder if that would shake creditors enough to stop loaning to US?
I read that Senator Mitch McConnell burst into laughter upon hearing Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner lay out President Obama's "Fiscal Cliff" plan. Here's the rub:

> $1.6 trillion in revenue
> $50.0 billion stimulus
> $400.0 billion in Medicare cuts

Unlike Susan Rice, who was sent in to fall on the administration's sword during the Benghazi cover up, Geithner isn't looking for his next government job. It makes him the perfect foil. He can actually go in with a straight face with a proposal so absurd that an old reserved guy like McConnell doubles over in hysterical disbelief. Some say this is how you begin...
