Ezra Klein was the guest host of The Last Word on Monday night and delivered a smackdown to Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, explaining why he is a fool to threaten default on the full faith and credit of the United States.

"So no, Congressman Salmon, it is not about time that we have a debt ceiling shut down. It is about time that we do something to make sure that never happens."

UPDATE: Ezra Klein's post This is what would happen if we breach the debt ceiling.
