Quote for the Day

"In other words, [the provision guaranteeing the national debt] is in the 14th Amendment to guard against exactly what Congressional Republicans are doing right now."
-- Jonathan Chait in Section 4 Of The 14th Amendment Was Designed To Stop Boehner

In other words, the GOP's apparent goal of defaulting on the national debt is *unconstitutional*.

Wry ha-ha.

But hell, the 14th amendment also contains the Citizenship, Due Process, and Equal Protection Clauses, and so is just *ripe* for repeal, right, 'baggers?
