I may be jumping the gun, but the next debate over the debt ceiling issue might very well be the trigger globalists will use to initiate a final burn of the U.S. economy. Ratings agencies are waiting in the wings to see if Congress kicks the can down the road yet again. If they do, and raise the debt ceiling without demanding legitimate cuts in government spending, there will likely be another credit downgrade of the United States. This will result in much higher borrowing costs and less sales of treasury bonds, leading to a devaluation of the dollar and future high inflation in the cost of goods. If they do not allow an increase in the debt ceiling, a technical default will take place. Either way, there are severe consequences coming after the decision is made…

President Barack Obama on Monday rejected any negotiation with Republicans over the most pressing U.S. fiscal issue, refusing to trade cuts in government spending in exchange for raising the borrowing limit.

The United States could default on its debt if the borrowing limit is not increased.
