Joe Biden is facing a dilemma.
Biden’s own party is helping to back him into a corner.
John Fetterman made one demand that made Joe Biden’s life a living hell.
Joe Biden is locked in a standoff with Republicans over raising the debt ceiling.
Biden demanded congressional Republicans pass a so-called “clean” debt ceiling increase to pour trillions of dollars into the national debt to pay for his socialist spending binge.
Conservatives muscled through a bill in the House slashing trillions of dollars in spending.
Biden claimed that if Republicans did not raise the debt ceiling the country would default and the economy would tank.
John Fetterman and a group of Democrats embraced the absurd and unconstitutional idea that Joe Biden can unilaterally raise the debt ceiling using the 14th Amendment.
In a series of posts on social media Fetterman called on Biden to seize dictator-like power and impose trillions in debt on the American people with the stroke of a pen.
“President Biden needs to consider using the 14th Amendment if necessary. The entire GOP debt ceiling negotiation is a sad charade, and it’s exactly what’s wrong with Washington. We’re playing with fire and the livelihoods of millions just for the GOP to try and turn the screws on hungry Americans,” Fetterman wrote.
Fetterman then said Biden should damn the torpedoes and move full speed ahead even though conservatives would immediately challenge Biden raising the debt ceiling through fiat in court daring the Supreme Court to strike down Biden’s dictatorial order.
“This is the whole reason why the 14th Amendment exists, and we need to be prepared to use it. We cannot let these reckless Republicans hold the economy hostage,” Fetterman added.
Section 4 of the 14th Amendment reads:
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section 4 of the 14th Amendment clearly states that only an act of Congress can incur debt.
The Court should strike down any scheme by Joe Biden to raise the debt ceiling using the 14th Amendment on a unanimous basis.
But if Biden follows Fetterman’s lead and illegally raises the debt ceiling using the 14th Amendment Biden would lose all leverage in dealing with Republicans once the Court puts the kibosh on Biden’s debt ceiling gambit.
