Of late, President Obama has been imploring lawmakers to embrace "shared sacrifice" to help break the stalemate over the debt impasse while lecturing, "We might as well do it now — pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas."

This party will take place the day after Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's arbitrary Aug. 2 debt ceiling deadline. The cost to attend the bash? As much as $35,800 per couple.
