“The 14th Amendment does not allow Obama to ignore the debt ceiling, but it does allow him to impound spending that would cause a violation of the 14th Amendment. By impounding tax expenditures, Obama will effectively raise taxes to avoid a default. http://sunsettheirs.org/theory-of-inverse-impoundment

“The generally accepted view that we must default or cut spending is not correct. Another option exists - President Obama can raise more revenue by cutting tax expenditures. In other words, raise taxes by removing tax deductions and credits. That gives an extra trillion dollars a year to spend. http://sunsettheirs.org/leaked-draft-executive-order-on-debt-ceiling
