Tea Party Rhetoric

The extreme right in our country is fond of several things;  It is fond of quoting chapter and verse of excerpts isolated from the Bible in justifying hatred of homosexuals and women who seek to control their own lives which may include an unintentional or unwanted pregnancy.  The same group is also particularly fond of quoting excerpts from our Constitution in justifying the possession, carrying, and use of weapons.  I put the following question out to this group including every Tea Party member and their thug-members of Congress who are holding the economy of the United States ransom;  What part of the following language in our U.S. Constitution do you not understand?

The Fourteenth Amendment states (in part);  

SECTION 4.  The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law . . . shall not be questioned.  . .
SECTION 5.  The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Just saying . . .
