Tony - seems to be a glitch in poll. At least on mine, Can only see/ make comments if I vote "political". Results look as if app records "fiscal" votes, maybe too many as I voted "fiscal" several times before testing what happens if vote "political"

I disagree with the premise of the question. The responsible thing would be for Congress, like everybody else on the planet, to set a budget and live within it's confines. Want a pet project for your reelection? Put it in the budget or let it go.

I don't understand how that's disagreeing with the premise? It sounds like you think the answer should be "fiscal"

United we stand, divided we fall. If we all work together, we can get through anything. Yes, changes absolutely must be made, but changing will never happen with this level of division.

Bush turned a record surplus into a record deficit While Boehner, Cantor, & Ryan voted for everything Bush asked for.

Last I checked, it was about what was the bigger problem: division or spending. As far as I can tell you are doing nothing to help the division aspect. Do you understand the question now?

Ronald Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times during his 8 years as President. Not only did the country survive after he tripled the national debt, from 1 trillion to 3 trillion, but he is considered today by many to have been a "GREAT " President.

That's pretty easy to do considering how large our deficits were in the late years of Bush and early years of Obama. Regardless I'm not going to be satisfied until the debt shrinks.

Deficit: Obama spending more than we bring in.

Debt: The culmination of Obama's spending spree.

Being fiscally responsible is an ongoing issue whereas raising the debt ceiling is a one time type of issue.

It will let you vote fiscal, the links to results and comments are just above the question, and it looks like you haven't voted, at least for me.

Good question.

Short-term: Not raising will cause more problems.
Long-term: Raising it repeatedly and continuously while not addressing spending will lead to a complete collapse.

Agree. We have to compromise. Raise the debt ceiling and lower expenses considerably so that we don't have to raise the ceiling every few months.

Given the current situation, I would have to accept the short-term political consequences and not raise it. There will be short-term pain for some, but the long-term gets closer every day and it's almost here.

Outstanding question. Fiscal is the answer. The bigger problem is the spending, not our unwillingness to simply rubber-stamp more debt ceiling increases.
