    Mentioning CAFR would reveal the shell game...

    Well good for you two for your willingness to listen to that shit. I couldn't handle more than a few minutes of her Luciferian spew.

    I didn't listen to it all, but its not a discussion I'm unfamiliar with. It's been pushed for almost a decade now, same bullshit fantasy money from nothing.

    Uh uh, nope! Could not get through the first minute of that bullshit.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.” ---C. S. Lewis

    Hmm... just spitballing here...

    Treasury.gov: Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen Sends Letter to Congressional Leadership on the Debt Limit
    Sept 8, 2021
    Dear Madam Speaker [Pelosi]:I am writing to follow up on my previous letters regarding the debt limit and to provide additional information regarding the Treasury Department’s ability to continue to finance the government in the absence of Congressional action to address the debt limit.

    After the debt limit was reinstated on August 1, Treasury began employing certain extraordinary measures to continue to finance the government on a temporary basis. These measures, which are authorized by law and have been used in previous debt limit impasses, include a suspension of certain investments in the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund, the Postal Service Retiree Health Benefits Fund, and the Government Securities Investment Fund of the Federal Employees’ Retirement System Thrift Savings Plan. Once all available measures and cash on hand are fully exhausted, the United States of America would be unable to meet its obligations
    Reuters: Democrats will not raise debt limit in $3.5 trillion bill -Pelosi
    Sept 8 (Reuters) - Democrats will not include a provision to raise the federal government's borrowing limit in a $3.5 trillion "reconciliation" spending measure they hope to pass this autumn, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday.Pelosi said the $28.5 trillion debt limit must be raised, but told a news conference she would not say whether this would be included in a must-pass bill to keep the government running, expected at the end of September.

    "I am not here to talk about where" the debt limit would be raised, "but it won't be in reconciliation," she told reporters.

    And that was from August 24, 2020, before the January 6, 2021 'insurrection.'

    the-sun.com: What is The 14th Amendment?
    Section 4
    "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned."

    Section 5
    "The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
    HuffPost.com: Nancy Pelosi Resurrects 14th Amendment Option In Debt Ceiling Fight
    Sep 26, 2013
    “I think the 14th Amendment covers it,” said Pelosi. “The president and I have a disagreement in that regard, I guess. I guess!”

    She added, “I would never have taken that off the table.”

    The federal government is on track to run out of money on Oct. 17. Instead of putting forward a clean bill to raise its borrowing limit, House Republicans are signaling they plan to load up their bill with unrelated measures that Democrats oppose — including delaying the implementation of health care reform. The debt limit, or the total amount of money the government is authorized to borrow to meet its existing obligations, currently stands at $16.7 trillion.

    National Review: The 14th Amendment and the Debt Ceiling
    October 7, 2013
    To argue that a tenuous reading of the 14th Amendment trumps the fundamental structure of the Constitution is akin to arguing that Congress could take over the role of commander-in-chief if the president refused to defend the country, on the grounds that Article 1, Section 8, Clause 11 awards the legislature the power “to declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water.”
