|So, have you heard the one about the trillion-dollar coin? It may sound like a joke. But if we aren't ready to mint that coin or take some equivalent action, the joke will be on us -- and a very sick joke it will be, too. There might be enough sane Republicans that the party will blink and stop making destructive threats.
