New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler called for Congress to abolish the debt ceiling, comparing congressional Republicans to “suicide” bombers for supporting spending cuts which exceed any increase in the debt limit.

“Paul Krugman used the example on TV the other day — said it’s like somebody wearing a suicide bomb vest walking into a crowded place saying, ‘I’ll blow up the place if you don’t give me what I want.’ That’s exactly what it is,” said Nadler, the Ranking Member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution on Wednesday at the Capitol.

“I use the analogy in speeches saying that it’s like a 1930s movie: ‘Nice economy you’ve got over there, pity if it should have to blow up if you don’t pay me off.’ and that’s what’s going on here.”
