    “Lew also rejected GOP suggestions that, in the event federal borrowing authority expires, the government could use the dwindling cash it has to make payments to debt holders and other high priority needs.”

    Proof Lew is ignorant of the constitutional requirement that the full faith and credit of the government be maintained – either that or he choses to ignore it and wants to inflict as much damage from the shut-down as possible.

    Since he is a dem and we know dems never let a good crisis go to waste, it is probably the latter.
