Yes, it's an odd question but listening today to Pelosi's description of the consequences of failure to raise the debt ceiling, I was struck by how easily the economy could be taken down by a combination of factors that we currently face.
- McConnell's pledge that his caucus will not vote to raise the debt ceiling again in December.
- Fuel shortages and shipping slowdowns around the world.
- Continuing supply line shortages and foul-ups.
- Manufacturing shortages leading to layoffs.
- Ongoing covid infections with the potential of further variants spreading.
- Continuing climate breakdown.
- Trumpists sweeping 2022 elections and paralyzing not only the Biden agenda but any
Democratic attempt to mitigate American suffering.
A combination of these circumstances could easily cause the national and global economy to fall off a very steep cliff. If that were to happen, Trump's reelection in '24 would be virtually assured, and that's all for Democracy, folks!
