Submission + - Congressman introduce bill to ban minting of trillion-dollar coin (politico.com)

Dainsanefh writes: Lawmakers are still positioning themselves for a debt ceiling fight in a few months, but one Republican congressman wants to snuff out a particular idea immediately: the U.S. Treasury minting $1 trillion platinum coins to avert a debt ceiling showdown.

Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) has introduced a bill to specifically ban President Barack Obama from minting the coins.

The trillion-dollar coin has been previously discussed on Slashdot:
