— Will Obama invoke the 14th Amendment to stop the Republicans from forcing America to default on paying for Bush’s wars? Possibly: “However, last night Rachel mentioned the section of the Constitution (14th amendment) that says the US has to pay it’s bills, meaning the President can act alone if the Congress can’t do it.

At this point, it seems the shutdown is inevitable though.”
