If the caller who stated that by law the Sec. of the Treasury can determine in what order and when the US Government bills are to be paid, then cut off all states that are Federal Welfare States and of course those RED STATES. I forgot they are one and the same. If that law is true; then Mr. Hartmann start a movement to E-Mail Government officials; from the WhiteHouse on down.
