Look, we're not goig to default. There is more than enough revenue to service debt interest obligations adn unless these politicians want to be eaten YES, EATEN, probably still while alive, they will meet those obligations. That isnt to say we wont feel some hurt over it.
I read EBT cards are going to stall out Nov. 1 should ne deal go through. Lilkely the federal employee furlough "scare" will come to actually pass and people will be laid off int he federl government (lots of waste there).
Otherwise, it's just another political theater designed to promote fear and get people to buy shit they dont need.
