Grandma and Grandpa may be holed up hungry without AC, thinking about the government

If Congress keeps hitting its head against the debt limit and knocking heads with each other (they all gotta have concussions by now), the government might skip the next round of Social Security payments.
That would be worse than bad news for many low-income and elderly Americans whose sole source of support is Social Security. After all, not everybody has a 401(k) fatter than Santa Claus.
Suddenly millions of Americans won’t be able to buy food or pay their utility bills, rent or mortgage. Good thing they don’t have country club memberships to worry about.
If Uncle Sam defaults, Grandma may wish that she had been run over by a reindeer.
