    With just 10 days left to raise the debt ceiling and congressional Republicans threatening to force the government to default on its obligations, banks are taking some dramatic steps to prepare for the economic chaos that would result should the brinkmanship continue.
    The Financial Times reports that one major U.S. bank has started stuffing its automatic teller machines with extra cash in preparation for a possible bank run from panicked depositors. The New York Times reports that another bank is weighing a plan to advance funds to customers who rely on Social Security and other government payments that could stop in the event of a default.
    The FT said the moves are part of “a ‘playbook’ used in August 2011 when the government last came close to breaching the debt ceiling.†The 2011 debt ceiling episode produced serious economic harm, costing the country a million jobs and a knock on its credit rating. Despite the GOP’s stated goal of reducing spending and protecting taxpayer money, their 2011 debt ceiling hostage-taking added $19 billion in borrowing costs.

    The only reason the fucking market's going down is because of Obama's stupid Marxist mouth!
