Sarah Palin on Obama: Defaulting on debt ‘impeachable offense’

October 16, 2013

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said President Obama’s failure to steer Congress toward a budget deal and break the impasses that has shut down the federal government could lead to impeachment — and he needs to step up to the plate and deal with Republicans.

Mrs. Palin also denounced Mr. Obama’s characterization of the debt ceiling discussion as “absurd,” calling his statement that raising the ceiling level doesn’t actually raise debt for Americans both false and dangerous.

“Apparently the president thinks he can furlough reality when talking about the debt limit. To suggest that raising the debt limit doesn’t incur more debt is laughably absurd,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “The very reason why you raise the debt limit is so that you can incur more debt. Otherwise, what’s the point?”

Mrs. Palin said Mr. Obama needed to quit “scaremongering the markets” with his discussions of default, and that if he only abided by the Constitution, all talk of default would naturally disappear.
“The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 4, requires that we service our debt first,” she wrote. “We currently collect more than enough tax revenue to service our debt if we do that first.”
