Procedural question triggered by final paragraph above: if the president declares that the debt ceiling won’t be met, and thus default, is there anybody else in the government that can gainsay him, no matter how difficult or unlikely it is? I asked a similar question in a past thread (https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=805443), but didn’t quite get answers.
