BUT the real problem comes in 3-8 weeks when the Treasury runs out of time to hide the fact that we actually have been over the debt ceiling since May 2013. Even if the CR "authorizes" the government to spend money. The government will only be able to spend what it ACTUALLY has on hand. No more "overdraft protection".
That would be when the black water tank hits the fan.
