Gets stupider by the day…
“Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) introduced what Democrats are calling the “Pay China First Act,” which would require the federal government to pay all its debt obligations first and everything else — vets, schools, you name it — with what’s left.”
Okay, so we tell Ben Bernanke to press the “China debit/credit buttons” on the keyboard first. That should take about 2 seconds, and then we can get back to crediting and debiting everything else as we always do.
This is what supposedly qualifies for serious economic debate in the US these days.
