To the Editor:
All this talk about raising the federal debt ceiling to keep the country from defaulting on its bonds is silly.

If the debt ceiling isn’t raised, the government will not shut down, tax money will still be pouring in. It’s Obama and the Democrats who are going to have to figure out how to prioritize payments so the interest on the debt gets paid.

What will probably happen is the debt will get paid first, then the other government agencies will get their share or slightly less. The government will have to spend less.
