The US government has defaulted on its debt twice in its history.
So that is what that call was about
Didn't know about the 1812 one, but I had heard of the other. Apparently the ceiling was raised at the last minute, then there was a computer problem that delayed payments for a few days. Whether or not it was a "real" default depends on who you ask.
True but PLEASE don't be one of those crazy "debt deniers"
Don't worry, I'm not
Hallelujah! And great question, hopefully anybody who didn't know now does know.
I honestly have no idea. I just guessed.
Obama wants a default. Its all he has been talking about.
Very interesting! Thanks for the link
