Why not a 50 trillion dollar debt? 100 trillion? When the amount is jnot payable, the amount may as well be nothing.

All it does is it says you got to pay the bills that you've already racked up, Congress. It's a basic function of making sure that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved."
Obama went on to suggest that "the average person" mistakenly thinks that raising the debt ceiling means the U.S. is racking up more debt:
