Democrat duplicity on the debt ceiling

Democrats didn't raise taxes with the approaching debt ceiling issue when they held both houses of Congress. With profligate spending they must have been able to forecast running out of ceiling room soon. Does that mean they ignored it on purpose to saddle the GOP with the cuts and, they hoped, tax increases to disaffect the Republican base? Or to use the tax the rich meme as a class warfare tool? It's possible, although that seems inherently evil in terms of putting politics ahead of a dire national predicament. Or were they so blind they couldn't see the train wreck coming? In that case put it down to unimaginable stupidity and gross incompetence.

And yet people vote for this insanity time an again. Apparently there are thousands of suckers born every minute.
