New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, January 13, applied terror-like language to lash out at Republicans for using the debt ceiling as leverage to reduce spending:

“We should not allow this to become thought of as a legitimate or normal budget strategy. This is hostage-taking. This is walking into a room saying I’ve got a bomb, give me what I want or I’ll blow up this room. This is not something -- this has never happened before and should not be allowed to happen.”
