The Republicans and the Debt Ceiling

All of the Republicans voted against raising the debt ceiling.

Of course from 1995-2007 the Republican-controlled Congress voted eight times to raise the debt ceiling. But not this time. Because they think their voters are idiots who can't remember anything prior to January 20, 2009. They might be right, actually.

Anyway, if the debt ceiling isn't lifted from time to time, we default on our loan payments and the American economy collapses.
