"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said that if Congress doesn't agree to a debt-ceiling increase, the federal government won't have the means to pay its bills, and that such a scenario would deliver on us a 'catastrophic economic impact.' Geithner has been joined in this bit of scaremongering by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. For fun, let's assume for a moment that, just as stopped clocks get the time right twice a day, Geithner and Bernanke are, for once, correct. If so, their warnings explain why it's essential that a Republican House that pays lip service to smaller government must not give in to Geithner's apocalyptic warnings." (05/20/11)
