This is going to get ugly. We haven't seen brinkmanship like this since the Cuban missile crisis. This could be payback from the Clintons. Don't think Hilary would not jump at the chance! http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0711/59836.html Steve King on default: Obama could be impeached By REID J. EPSTEIN | 7/25/11 1:28 PM EDT Updated: 7/25/11 2:45 PM EDT Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Monday that President Barack Obama âwould be impeachedâ if the nation falls into default. âSTOP talking about default,â he wrote on Twitter. âThe 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!â King is among the House Republicans who voted for the so-called âCut, Cap and Balanceâ plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget. The Senate last week dismissed the House bill. King isnât the first Republican to suggest that Obama should be impeached over the debt crisis. Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said earlier this month it would be âan impeachable offenseâ for Obama to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval. In April, former Reagan administration official Bruce Fein drafted articles of impeachment in hopes that House Republicans would introduce them. And Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in March said the air attacks on Libya are impeachable acts.
