So you either have hard facts and evidence to back it up or GTFO and stay out!
It's easy ... I'll quote some of my favorite communists:

It's really common sense. We run out of money in May (really more like July). If we can't take out further loans to pay for things, we literally can't pay for anything.

Think of this way. You 'own' a business. You take out loans to pay payroll. If you can no longer take out loans to pay payroll, then your business closes. This is actually what has happened with many small businesses over the past few years as lending had tightened. The same theory applies to the government. No loans = no paying for ANYTHING. And then the world-wide markets go into a tailspin again. A global depression.

Simple theory.

Reducing spending by 20% and not raising the debt ceiling won't even work. We still need to borrow money to pay for things.

Republicans all agree with this. They just like to demand cuts to appease their base. They all know they eventually have to vote for the debt ceiling to be raised.
