Weegy: In the summer of 2011, the 14th Amendment became the focus of debate over one of its more obscure provisions — Section 4. [ The section was meant to ensure the payment of Union debts after the Civil War and to disavow Confederate ones, but was written in broader terms. “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payments of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion,” the critical sentence says, “shall not be questioned.” With Democrats and Republicans at loggerheads over raising the federal debt ceiling, former President Bill Clinton and a number of legal scholars argued that the providion provided a constitutional escape hatch should President Obama and Congress fail to come to terms on a deficit reduction plan before the government hits its borrowing ceiling. Mr. Obama had earlier appeared to reject the idea, though not in categorical terms. “I have talked to my lawyers,” Mr. Obama said. “They are not persuaded that that is a winning argument.” Adding another element of uncertainty, and possible court battles, to the debate do not seem to appeal to the White House. And it is, in any event, not clear that the nation’s creditors would continue to lend money to the United States were the president to take unilateral action. The Supreme Court has said in passing that the section has outlived the historical moment that gave rise to it. “While this provision was undoubtedly inspired by the desire to put beyond question the obligations of the government issued during the Civil War,” Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes wrote for the court in 1935, “its language indicates a broader connotation.” Some law professors have joined Mr. Clinton in saying it allows Mr. Obama to ignore the debt ceiling. Others say it applies only to Congress and only to outright default on existing debts. ] (More)
