Congress Resumes Debt Limit Discussion

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.
