The Debt Ceiling and stocks

Hey guys,
I was wondering if I could get some input, I looked around briefly but did not see this topic.

I was thinking of what sectors will be affected the most in the event that the debt ceiling is not raised. I know the whole market will take a dive, but if the ceiling isn't raised, i'd like to buy into the sector that gets hit the hardest.
I was thinking maybe defense contractors, because the goverment is sure to hold off on awarding any contracts untill there's a way forward. What say you?

There is no need to think at all about this because when stocks drop all you have to do is look to see what drops the most. No need to guess. Just look.
