For those in the Republican Party who believe that running through the debt ceiling would be good for the country . . . consider that the Chinese have been relatively silent about the extortion tactics of the Republican Caucus in Congress . . . until now.
If you would like to know what they think, consider the following quotes from a recent press release:
“. . . instead of honoring its duties as a responsible leading power, a self-serving Washington has abused its superpower status and introduced even more chaos into the world by shifting financial risks overseas, instigating regional tensions amid territorial disputes, and fighting unwarranted wars under the cover of outright lies.
“. . . the world is still crawling its way out of an economic disaster thanks to the voracious Wall Street elites, while bombings and killings have become virtually daily routines in Iraq years after Washington claimed it has liberated its people from tyrannical rule.
“Such alarming days when the destinies of others are in the hands of a hypocritical nation have to be terminated, and a new world order should be put in place, according to which all nations, big or small, poor or rich, can have their key interests respected and protected on an equal footing.”
For you reality-averse Republicans, this “gonna mean yo’ fat cat donors are gonna be royally pissed at you when you lose them huge amounts of money” as the world divests itself of distorting American financial instruments, like the U.S. dollar and Treasury notes.
