Of those surveyed, 41 percent say Congress should not raise the debt ceiling

Hasn't Congress already approved the current tax rates and all spending? And if they know arithmetic, they will know what the shortfall is?
So why is there a separate vote on saying "oh, and we realise we're short by this much, but we're good for it"?

"Debt" is a scary word. (Cue Carlin or someone.)
