**Democrats left speechless as constitutional expert Jonathan Turley debunks their debt ceiling fantasies**

Over the weekend, renowned constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley stopped progressive Democrats in their tracks when he exposed the flaws in their suggestion that President Joe Biden should invoke the 14th Amendment to solve the debt ceiling crisis. Clearly unfamiliar with the Constitution, Democratic lawmakers such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez display both ignorance and wishful thinking in their proposals.

Ocasio-Cortez publicly endorsed using the 14th Amendment at a recent town hall, demonstrating her misguided belief that it could be used to eliminate the debt ceiling altogether. Turley, a professor at the George Washington School of Law, seized upon these remarks as evidence that Ocasio-Cortez, despite her position in Congress, lacks an understanding of basic constitutional law. He pointed out that even legal scholars who entertain the possibility of using the 14th Amendment in this context, like Laurence Tribe, do not claim it would eradicate the nation’s debt limits.

Adding to the Democrats’ confusion was Sen. John Fetterman, who last week insisted that the primary reason for the existence of the 14th Amendment was to address national debt. Turley quickly pointed out Fetterman’s oversight in neglecting the significance of the Equal Protection Clause, one of the most cited legal doctrines originating from the 14th Amendment.

The reality is that invoking the 14th Amendment to solve the debt ceiling crisis is, at best, a dubious legal strategy. Rather than averting a crisis, such a move would most likely prolong it by causing further controversy and debate over the legality of the maneuver, all without ever addressing the root of the debt problem. Turley’s swift dispelling of these misguided proposals serves as a reminder of the importance of a clear, well-founded understanding of the Constitution when formulating solutions to real-world issues.
