No doubt you, too, will sleep more soundly once you read this:
Haley dismisses risk of debt
… Haley was asked Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” whether the debt ceiling should be raised.
“Absolutely not,” she said. “We are seeing total chaos in D.C. right now. The very first thing they need to do is make sure that they stop raising the debt.”
However, the federal government finances itself partly by selling debt to investors and other countries through Treasury bills that must be paid back, Obama said in a town hall style meeting shown on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“If they thought that we might renege on our IOUs, it could unravel the entire financial system,” he said, and the result would be a recession worse than the last one.
“So we can’t even get close to not raising the debt ceiling,” Obama said.
Asked about the possibility of damaging America’s credibility, Haley said, “Government is notorious for saying the sky is falling.”…
And remember, our gov knows about money stuff like this. She is a way skillful accountant. Just ask her; she’ll tell you.
Also, she never makes mistakes. Ever. We are in such good hands…
And if you read further in that same story, you encounter this:
“I find it silly,” Haley said about talk of her joining a Republican presidential ticket in 2012.
Right again, governor! Nothing sillier… Told you she was awesome.
Of course, there is a downside to this good news:
Haley said she is committed to serving out her term as governor.
“The people of South Carolina took a chance on electing me,” she said. “It is my job and my family’s job to prove to them that they made a good decision.”
