Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) has a solution for determining who won't get paid if Congress fails to raise the debt limit and the U.S. defaults.

The congressman brought a large wheel with him to the House floor Friday. Spinning the wheel determines which group won't get paid when the Treasury runs out of cash.

"[Republicans are] playing a game with our economy to force through an extremist agenda," Deutch explained. "That's what we've been battling against. That's what you've been watching. That's what people all around the country are so incredibly frustrated with. It's a game that I have right beside me. It is, in fact, the GOP Wheel of Misfortune, except in this game there are no winners."
