His boss has been "playing with the debt ceiling" ever since he took office with the largest deficits in history and he has the unmitigated gall to self-righteously preach to others about "playing with the debt ceiling"??
What a piece of work this guy is...to hell with him, SHUT DOWN the government until someone in Congress shows us they are not complete idiots!
President Obama's top economic advisor, Austan Goolsbee, warned today against "playing chicken" with raising the country's debt ceiling, saying it would cause "a worse financial economic crisis than anything we saw in 2008."
"This is not a game. The debt ceiling is not something to toy with," said Goolsbee, the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, in an exclusive interview on "This Week."
"If we hit the debt ceiling, that's ... essentially defaulting on our obligations, which is totally unprecedented in American history," he said. "The impact on the economy would be catastrophic."
