“‘If [default] does happen, it’s a pure act of idiocy. You might say that the threat to not raise the debt ceiling after you’ve already spent the money is, it’s really a political weapon of mass destruction,’ [Warren Buffet] Berkshire Hathaway CEO said on CNBC’s ‘Squawk Box’ on Wednesday. ‘There are certain weapons that are just improper to use against humanity. And to use this against the American public, it is a political weapon of mass destruction, and both sides should say we’re not going to touch it, just like with poison gas, just like with nuclear weapons. It’s too powerful.’”
