What They Are Up To

So what is behind the Republicans' delusional claim that nothing bad will happen if they let the debt ceiling expire?  Here's what I suspect:  Their actual goal is to force President Obama, in order to prevent the nation from going into default, and to comply with the 14th amendment, to raid the Social Security trust fund to pay our current bills.  If they can keep it up long enough, they think they can bankrupt Social Security and destroy it through this underhanded tactic.

As usual, to Republicans, everything is a chance to divert more of our wealth from ordinary people into the hands of the rich, and in the process, they have turned the really rich (who control our politics today) into insatiable, slavering monsters who must be fed more and more of what the middle class has left.
