    Monday’s Colbert Report was the first mention of the trillion dollar coin I had heard except for another comedy site online,
    I think it is a great idea.

    It is a great idea to let the rest of the world know this country is being run by escapees from an insane asylum.

    Although the “inside the beltway” crowd often comes up with idiocy,…..

    @Rockngolfer

    The idea has been around for about a week (read Prof Krugman). Congress passed a law on the legal denominations of gold, silver, copper, and whatever they make normal coins out of these days, but the law allows for commemorative platinum coins in any denomination, and ‘any’ includes trillions and/or quadrillions and/or googles and googleplexes. It’s a legal trick to circumvent that legal contradiction, the debt ceiling, where Congress passes one law that orders the government to spend money, and a contradictory law that says the government cannot spend that money.

    It IS a great idea. If not to deal with the deficit, to teach the hate-filled right-wing extremists of the Republican party that their job is to GOVERN and not just to sit there and obstruct.

    Should Obama opt to have the coin minted the right will scream and demand hearings of impeachment, all while breathing a sigh of relief.

    It was about a week ago I read about the idea for a trillion dollar platinum coin. I thought it was on te Daryl Cagle blog, but I have been unable to access that website to check it out.

    It makes as much sense as CONgress voting to spend money, then refusing to pay the money, then blaming the President.

    He should let her keep the change as a tip.
