NOT Jobs Over Debt Reduction?

A poll was published on The Nation website, and results were interesting. Frankly, I don’t know quite what to make of them. The question was what to do regarding the current deficit/debt ceiling issue.

Responses ran: 34% for raising the ceiling while cutting debt and raising taxes, 34% for Obama invoking the 14th amendment and ordering the debt paid, only 24% for Congress to prioritize a long term jobs plan, and
8% for the Fed to simply tear up the “fake” debt.

So, only one-fourth of respondents favored jobs over debt reduction.

Wait, what? the 14th Amendment? How are they stretching that to cover this situation? Okay it has a debt proviso, but not for this.

And just "tear up" the debt? Just stop the madness already.
