Just Wondering.  They made a big stink about it during the Obama administration.  Now it appears that we will face a cash crunch by the first half of October if Congress fails to raise or suspend the country's debt ceiling soon.

Of course they will. The GOP doesn't have the guts to rein in government spending.

They have no other option.  Might require some posturing and grandstanding first, but it's going to happen.

Maybe they'll shut the federal government down as a way of bringing the president to the bargaining table.
