Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Monday that President Barack Obama “would be impeached” if the nation falls into default.As Politico points out, Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) also brought up the 'I' word recently over something very similar.
“STOP talking about default,” he wrote on Twitter. “The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B!”
King is among the House Republicans who voted for the so-called “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget. The Senate last week dismissed the House bill.
