All debt ceiling fights are dumb. This was the dumbest of them all.



Well really it’s that debt ceiling fights come out of dumb execution of dumb laws.

When Congress tells you that you can spend $100 million out of the $50 million dollars in the bank, so you go ahead and spend and run out, that is just dumb. And that is where the debt ceiling comes in.

When the president agrees to spend more than he has, well that is dumb and that is the core of what has happened here.
