Napolitano: Nancy Pelosi’s Comments About 14th Amendment ‘Betray an Ignorance of the Constitution’

From Fox News Insider:

During an appearance on CBS’ ‘Face the Nation,’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested that President Obama use the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling and dodge a legislative showdown.

She said, “If I were president, I would use the 14th Amendment, which says that the debt of the Un

ited States will always be paid.”

Judge Napolitano targeted Pelosi’s interpretation of the amendment, saying, “Mrs. Pelosi has essentially taken a small phrase in the 14th Amendment and extrapolated it well beyond its original meaning or even any common sense.”
