"Incels"...every Supreme Court justice except Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor is married. But then "incel" never did mean anything except "a man you wish would be denied sex and love". Actual involuntary celibacy is strictly coincidental.
. Gorsuch, Alito, and Kavanaugh (rapist) give off major incel weird vibes. (and like most incels are happy to deny women basic human rights). These 3 nuts cases ALONE can dictate the direction of cases. So yes, the "incels" on the court could cause Biden to lose.
It doesn't seem that anyone has actually posted what is in the constitution:
Section 8: Powers of Congress The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
It doesn't get any clearer than that; Presidents can't just borrow money. By the way, it also says congress is who pays the debts, not the President. If Congress is not paying the bills as is in the constitution, it is up to the Supreme Court to force them to, not for the president to just decide to.
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. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
So somehow this allows the president to borrow money?
The spirit of the law is obviously that the US would pay the debts of the Union but not the Confederacy, but even doing your best to ignore that and try to twist the words, it does not allow the president to just do what he wants.
So fortunately, the constitution does actually treat debt and money the same. These Biden administration arguments that they are somehow different (for example, he claims he can just cancel student debt at a whim) doesn't pass muster.
McCarthy, of California, often equates the U.S. national debt of $31.4 trillion to individual consumer debt. He argues that if you go “over your limit” on personal credit cards, then you, and by extension America, need to “spend less in the coming year than we spent this year.”
But it’s not that simple. Raising the debt limit does not authorize more spending in the future. For now, it merely allows the government to cover the bills it has already incurred.
What Republicans are really doing is using their leverage, and the implicit threat of default, to accomplish a separate, longstanding GOP policy goal: Force the government to roll back discretionary spending. In this case, McCarthy wants 2024 baseline spending to be rolled back to its 2022 level. Yet he also insists that defense spending — which makes up more than 30% of the total — be insulated from any cuts. This means everything else would need to be slashed even further to get the overall number back to 2022 levels.
According to the conservative-leaning CATO Institute, exempting the military from a spending rollback would require cutting the rest of government — everything from homeland security to public health to air traffic control — by around 20%.
The examples given show why this is has become a losing issue for those politicking for an unrestricted increase in the debt. The last few years have made it clear that the government is way more corrupt and way more wasteful than could be imagined just a short time ago.
homeland security: pretty clear that we can use a whole lot less surveillance of, for example, parents who attend school board meetings and 15 agents might be a bit much to check on the knots used on NASCAR garages.
Public health: If the CDC and NIH didn't exist the covid response would have been a lot better. Without NIH funding we may not have even had covid.
Air traffic control: Buttigieg will just have to delay replacing the racist roads and make due without female crash test dummies (whatever those things are) in order to pay the controllers.
