Treasury Secretary Says Lawmakers Have “No Choice” But To Raise The Debt Limit

No debate, he says. We must pay the bills we have incurred, he says:

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Friday urged congressional leaders to raise the debt limit and insisted that the White House is not going to negotiate over the increase because lawmakers have “no choice.”

“We will not negotiate over the debt limit,” Lew wrote. “The creditworthiness of the United States is non-negotiable. The question of whether the country must pay obligations it has already incurred is not open to debate.”

Lew said that while President Obama is willing to discuss plans to reduce the nation’s deficit with Congress, those talks must be kept separate from any effort to raise the nation’s debt cap.

Well, here’s a thought.

Lew is a little arrogant, it’s true – but I’ll agree with that if we cut off costs that we have not incurred yet – like Obamacare.
