Yes. I'll also note that the poll options were hilariously worded, very dishonestly.

Congress already decided to spend the money when they passed budget deficits. Congress could have instead passed budgets which are balanced or in surplus.

Prior congresses and presidents decided to spend the money. The current congress and president is unwilling or unable to balance the budget. At that point, you either borrow or default.

The very concept of the debt ceiling is stupid.
