As for the impeachment Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said yesterday that Obama "would be impeached" if the nation defaults. He posted on Twitter "STOP talking about default, the 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!" What is C C & B? It is "Cut, Cap and Balance" a plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget.

 

Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said earlier in the month it would be "an impeachable offense" for Obama to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval.
