"In a government shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time. In an economic shutdown — if we don't raise the debt ceiling — they don't go out on time," Obama said. "In a government shutdown, disability benefits still arrive on time. In an economic shutdown, they don't." Read more:

This was the predicted trump card that would be played.

The POTUS is throwing this back to Congress saying he will not negotiate saying, this is Congress responsibility.

The debt clock was frozen over 4 months ago.

Any thoughts?

Any hope?

Any suggestions?

Is this all part of the plan to bring down the USA?

I couldn't be more disgusted with it all.

I hope this thread does not devolve into a blame game thread thad goes nowhere. We have some good minds at ATS who can criticially think and perhaps find a solution that the players in Washington seem to be incapable of at this point in time.

Constructive criticism welcomed.
