(POLITICO) President Barack Obama is risking “impeachable” offenses with the way he is handling the debt limit debate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said in a post on her Facebook page Monday.
“Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense,” Palin wrote.
In her statement, Palin also accused the president of “scaremongering” on the debt ceiling. She suggested that a default could be averted by paying interest on the debt through daily revenues collected by the United States, an idea that has been recently touted by several conservative voices on the right.
“It’s also shameful to see him scaremongering the markets with his talk of default. There is no way we can default if we follow the Constitution,” she said, also adding that the president was trying to “furlough reality” when talking about the debt limit.
