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.
The Fourteenth amendment, section 4 of the United States Constitution clearly states that it is the duty of Congress to pay the public debt, no questions asked.
But for five long years this debt has been held hostage by members of the Tea Party elected to Congress. These people claim to defend the Constitution but use it as toilet paper and do not care that our country would default on their debts. They couldn’t care less if their irresponsible actions will sink this country in an economic chaos from which it may never recover – that is not their problem. Their only concern is Obamacare and if in order to repeal it the country goes to hell, so be it.
I’m sorry, but this is not love of country; this is not patriotism… this is actually treason. Their irresponsible act is an act purposely perpetrated to inflict damage to the country, to destroy its economy, to destroy our image and leaving us vulnerable against the attacks of our enemies. Nowhere in the constitution it says that we can forfeit paying our debts to satisfy the tantrum of members of Congress, nowhere. It is the duty and obligation of Congress to pay the country’s debt, period.
Article I Section. 6 The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.
Article III Section 3 Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Ted Cruz and his gang are waging war against the country for personal gain. Do not be fooled by thinking this is being done for the good of the country because it is not. The only thing Ted Cruz is interested in is in getting enough funding from his supporters to run for president in 2016. He doesn’t care about the country, perhaps because he is not a true American after all he is half Cuban and born in Canada, not the United States.
Obamacare has been the tool the Republicans and Teabaggers have used to agitate their base and the reason why they are holding the debt ceiling hostage in order to get what they want: repeal Obamacare. It matters little that they can do this any time they want, actually they’ve tried over 40 times to repeal it. It matters none that Obamacare can start and if it is as bad as they claim to be, people will back them up and the law could be reversed. None of this matters because Obamacare is not what matters to them, for Ted Cruz and his gang all it matters is to bring this country to its knees and in their sick mind, they will come out victorious. They are so stupid that they don’t seem to realize that if we destroy this country economically, what they will inherit is a country that will be a shadow of it’s glory and it may never be the world power again.
Perhaps the Koch brothers have promised them to bail the economy out once Obamacare has been repealed and of course, once a member of the Tea Party wins the White House. The problem is, that will not happen. The Koch brothers will not be able to restore the credit score of the country, will not have enough money to sustain the country’s expenses and what’s more absurd is that the American people will not forget who destroyed us, who was irresponsible enough that designed and executed this destruction. We will never elect a Teabagger for president!
