Just discovered this guy Ben Swann from Fox 19  in Cincinnati, Ohio…a couple of things he misses in this segment is the 14th amendment says, “authorized by law” and what is the law? The Constitution is the law. The Constitution only authorizes Congress as far as spending money goes. Section 5 of the 14th amendment (which most are also leaving out) says what? CONGRESS shall have the power to enforce this by appropriate legislation. I don’t read anything in here about the Executive branch………that’s because of checks and balances. Not giving too much power to one branch over the other. The founders were brilliant.

The 14th Amendment says:

Section 4.

“The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned……..”

Section 5.

The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
