The 14th Amendment won't work. Some on the left are calling for Biden to use the 14th Amendment to destroy what's left of the economy and go on the same path of destruction of tax and spend.
The 14th was an amendment in part to stop Southern states ( Democrats ) from denying the debt to be paid. Amendment 14 was originally passed because representatives from Confederate states had tried to disavow the Federal debt and stop paying Union veterans bonuses, but get Congress to pay the Confederate debt, in addition to compensation for slaves freed as a result of the war and the 13th Amendment.
Progressives forget that they tried this when Obama was President. Even Obama with his limited knowledge of the law knew that wasn't possible. A blast from the past.
At a press conference Monday, President Obama confirmed that he would not use the 14th Amendment to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling unless both houses of Congress gave him the express authority to do so.
Obama was not convinced that invoking the 14th Amendment was a “winning argument.” And, as the New York Timesreported last July, it’s “not clear that the nation’s creditors would continue to lend money to the United States were the president to take unilateral action.” Then, as now, Obama balked at the prospect of testing an obscure constitutional provision.
