Maybe I'm wrong about the debt ceiling adding to the debate since I don't think even you know what it means. By accident you probably just destroyed my argument.
Deficits and debt are different, but they're not mutually exclusive. Talking about one is oftentimes a discussion involving the other.
And they have been discussed ad nauseum during the two most recent presidencies, in times in and out of a debt ceiling crisis.
So the need for a debt ceiling continues to escape me. You have yet to provide anything I'd consider compelling.
