In my humble opinion, the concept of voting on increasing the debt ceiling is bogus. The time to think about the debt ceiling is when the budget is passed. At that point, the money is committed to be spent. The intention is to spend it. The Constitution doesn’t require a debt ceiling. The only thing I could find in the Constitution is that we should pay all our legal bills. No exceptions. Voting on the debt ceiling after the budget is passed is a form of double jeopardy. Haggling over the debt ceiling is a waste of time that could be used for other purposes. The legislature has so much to do and each issue needs to be reviewed. Don’t waste time.
