Jake Tapper forces Obama press secretary Jay Carney to go through illogic of Obama claims

Carney doesn't answer Jake Tapper's question about whether a default is worse than having to vote again on the debt ceiling next year. I wish that someone would similarly question Carney about whether there is any real risk of default, though Tapper was right for his question to just assume that Obama was right here and push through the lack of logical consistency. Given how many times that debt ceiling increases have been voted on in the past, it is just absurd to think that a default is comparably bad to having a temporary extension in the debt ceiling.
