So it's OK for the spender-in-chief to make demands..."I will not sign off unless there is an increase in tax rates on the "rich"...but it's not OK for the House to demand that any increase in the debt ceiling coinsides with an equal amount of decrease in spending?

@ drfrankt - You don't really know what the debt "ceiling" is used for, do you? Mitch "The Turtle" Mcconnell filibustering his own bill?? Priceless.
