So, do we really know what will happen if the debt ceiling isn’t raised? From most accounts, it’s gonna be doomsday for the average Joe or Joanne, but how will Kevin McCarthy and company fare? Are they pursuing this tact knowing that they have nothing to worry about, that this insistence on holding out won’t affect them nearly as much as it will the rest of us?
And what are they trying to prove? Fiscal sanity in one fell swoop?
I can’t imagine it’s anything that honorable.
