So you believe it would "kill" the country to decline to raise the debt ceiling (which seems silly anyway; after all, why have a "ceiling" if it will be automatically raised whenever one approaches it?); yet the country will be essentially unharmed if it attempts to live vastly beyond its means ad infinitum?

You cannot seriously believe that. Especially the latter part of that equation...
