Congress Resumes Debt Limit Discussion

Tyler Durden's picture


The soap opera has resumed in Congress. Feels a little deja vu'ish? So it should. The expectation is that Congress will pass the "amended amended" Boehner Bill around 6 pm. The same as yesterday. Will it pass? Who knows. If not, expect overnight GC to surge on Monday, yields on Bills and CMB maturing after August 2 to surge, even as the 30 Year plunges to zero, making a mockery of UST curve "market efficiency." On the other hand, Obama will likely just end up invoking the 14th amendment, and then we will have a constitutional crisis to go along with all the other drama.

"Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion--when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing--when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you--when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice--you may know that your society is doomed."

Recent Bloomberg article estimates USA total unfunded debt exceeds $200 trillion. With 65000 people per day going on social security, 1% GDP growth, labor costs 10 times that of China/India, all wealth with be confisicated over time. All gold transactions are being tracked and individuals will be required to surrender their gold at a fraction of cost under penalty of $10,000/oz fine and/or 10 years of prison for not complying. Yea, holding gold will protect you.

It can be amended in the Senate to look more like the Reid plan.  Assuming it got enough votes, the House and Senate would have a conference to haggle over the differences.  The final version would then go to both the House and Senate for a final vote.  That's the way it is USUALLY done with important, complex legislation.

I just read that even if everything goes perfectly for the Reid bill, it won't be voted on until the afternoon of August 2nd.  And that's before it's reconciled with the House.  So basically, we're going to blow the deadline.  The only thing that might mediate is if they can announce a "sure thing" deal before then, even if they don't have a chance to vote on it until the 3rd or 4th.

The House bill only requires an Amendment to the US Constitution, so that's a pretty low bar.

I think you missed the sarcasm in their comment.  :-)

Seriously, though, the Republican/Tea Party balanced budget amendment demand only applies to getting it through Congress.  That requires 2/3rds of each chamber of Congress.  Even if they hammer out a deal, the amendment won't pass.  It's mostly about having the vote to score political points.  Only after an amendment passes both chambers of Congress does it go out to the states.  Incidentally, it would have a decent chance of getting to 3/4ths of the states if it ever got that far.

What you need to remember is who created the August 2 deadline


and of course to a tax cheat deadlines mean squat, Aug 2 is arbitrary and will be recast to fit the script e.g. Aug 5


When you think about it, which would O rather be dealing with, the GDP number or this soap opera - lesser of two evils and if one brings out the tin foil you might even conclude that some have intentionally created/prolonged this crisis because of the looming GDP disaster

If Obama invokes the 14th amendment can we hold him accountable for treason? The 14th in no way says that he can bypass congress and spend money. FU Bill Clinton for even trying to bring up that load of horseshitte!!!!

If Obama sends the US military into cities to suppress a rebellion then YES THAT DEBT CAN NOT BE QUESTIONED AS PER THE 14th AMENDMENT.

To borrow money and spend it based on nothing more than political pandering to his welfare base, NO HE MAY NOT.

Who do you think Obama will pay:

Grandma and Grandpa on SS


His base of social welfare frauds

There is only enough tax receipts to pay for one of them. Grandma won't torch cities when her check doesn't come in the mail.

Lawrence Tribe has already analyzed the question and said he cannot make use of the 14th Amendment to do anything.

A law which says the debt shall not be questioned does not trump other laws.  Would it excuse him from committing murder in order to pay it?

The president is contrained in spending by a Debt Ceiling.  It is the law of the land and he must obey it.

There is sufficient tax revenue to service the debt, so it's a moot point.  Other "obligations" are the equivalent of service contracts, like the one on your fridge.  Such contracts can be cancelled.  They have no Constitutional protection.

Grandma and grandpa shouldn't be on social security until they are 85. Welfare is a blatant socialist scheme but old people using something intended as a safety net for the few that need it as a retirement program aren't much better in my book.

Mel Watt just screamed his head off about lord knows what.  And now Fwank is on the mic, looking like he just swallowed his tongue.  Name calling, name calling, name calling.  And Shiela Jackson Lee urges the President to invoke a debt raise on his own, which is insane.  She is insane.  Repubs look just as stupid.  They have not brought up one real issue on why the debt is a problem.  The problem is this country has handed over all their wealth to a group of corporate banks.  There is no accountability from either side.  Both ignore the problem:  Monetary and fiscal policy is a sham. 

It is run by a private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve System.  The "Fed" and its cartel of globalist banking houses seem to be in the clear, while politicians nit pick about the crumbs that are left out of the people of the Unidted States of America's pocket.

One big circus, I tell you.  One big circus.

Oh, and the US government will default.  Yes they will.  And then the BIS, IMF, and World Bank will swoop in and treat the situation like they do with failed 3rd world states.  They will use as collateral the gold on the Fed's books, the debt/GDP of the US, and the other credits and obligations of the Treasurie and Reserve Bank.  Good luck America, for we hardly knew thee.

I know, I don't like it either, but maybe you will agree, the way this was set up was to have the governments bankrupt and the Banks solvent.  The Major Banking Houses will make the loans from the IMF/World Bank as Private Dealers as they do now via the Federal Reserve Bank.

I understand his point, but he actually got some facts wrong.  Most of the gold is on the US Treasury's books and still accounted for at $44.22/oz.  The Fed has little compared to the Treasury.  The Fed gave its physical to the Treasury in exchange for paper gold certificates.  Then the Treasury gave some of the physical to the NY Fed for storage.  Alot of people think that the US Treasury gold at the NY Fed is no longer there, but I disagree.  It is still physically there but likely has multiple claims against it (fractional reserve ponzi bs).  The US Treasury can, at anytime, revalue its gold in $'s to whatever price is necessary to pay its debt.  What $-price is the question.

Fri, 07/29/2011 - 18:29 | 1506661 Mr Lennon Hendrix

The Fed has the gold on loan to the Treasurie.  The Treasurie can exercise the payment, redeemable in cash.  The gold is housed by the Fed, and sits as the Fed's asset.

Why these people care so much about a small drop in the stock market? Why the stock market can not go down? It's absolutely stupid.

     When the FED wanted to protect it's friends, Banks, including Foreign Banks, and Corporations of every discription, with money and guarantee's ABOVE THE $700 Billion Authorized,  they simply went ahead and created it. Many TRILLIONS of DOLLARS. Then tried their very best to hide the evidence.


     No wrangling, back and forth, to and fro debate on the pro's and con's, They Just Created It, outside any debt limit talk, outside any legal authorization, above and WAY beyond the $700 Billion.


     Now all of a sudden, when its for the American people, Social Security Recipients, there is all this discussion about whether it's legal, or within the limit authorization.


    Is it me, or what? It seems so blatent and in need of severe disipline, its just screaming at the top of its lungs for punishment, and yet the banal chatter somehow continues un-abatted. To even sit down for any discussion of any kind, is way beyond comprehension.

Boner 3.0 will pass, so it goes to the SINate.

Reid sodomizes it, and sends it back.

Boner can choose to not put it to a vote, if he has any balls left, or

a big majority of the House Repubes can vote against.

Remember, they can change their votes at the last minute if the Dims vote for.

If the Libs are trying this, they fall into a new trap.

I ain't worried.

- Boehner's new plan would allow an initial increase in the debt ceiling, but would make approval of the balanced-budget amendment a requirement for raising the debt ceiling a second time. ...

ok, so no BBA for this first debt ceiling raise...but if you want to raise it a second time...then for way...not without a BBA...maybe

They haven't won jack yet.  When this sodomized bill returns, is the big one.

See those 5 Dims NV?  That's because votes can be changed.  This was the first time I've seen the vote called on time.  Dims need this bill to modify.

We won't default, and no one here can tell me we will. 

We have more than enough money to pay bond holders. We have more than enough money to pay social security. 

How can we default if the debt ceiling is not raised? I don't see it.

Maybe we don't pay foodstamps (that's not default), maybe we stop providing funds for planned parenthood (that' not default) Maybe we don't pay the the EPA, that's not default....etc, etc, etc

How are we going to default? As long as we pay the people whom have leant to us, it's NOT A DEFAULT

It's just starting.  Tomorrow the SINate sodomizes and passes it.  Be back in the House midnite Sun, as per usual.

Start calling your 'R' rep now to vote no, if there are any changes.
