At 9:00 am on Wednesday, if the stock market tanks on the threat of a U.S. debt default, you can bet John Boehner, Reince Priebus, and NRCC head Greg Walden will get some angry phone calls. You know the kind of calls that start with, “You dumb son-of-a-bitch, get this sorted out, NOW!!!”
You see the big financiers of the GOP (and the Democrats too) don’t care about the tri-corner hat crowd when it comes to their investment portfolio. If the U.S. government defaults on its debt obligations then their investments will suffer from the global economic panic that will ensue. So you can bet by 9:05 am tomorrow Boehner, Priebus and Walden will all be getting an earful.
Will it have an impact?
Does money talk and bullshit walk?
