Can we please get a clue?

Congress has increased the debt ceiling again. One wonders what a debt ceiling is for if Congress just keeps raising it.

Here's what really irritates me though.
Democrats blame Bush's tax cuts for pushing up government borrowing and turning the fiscal surplus he inherited into a record deficit.

Republicans say the fiscal shortfall is due to the 2001 recession, the costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Do we not have one politician that will admit the problem is spending too much? Even us dumb-as-a-rock red state bigots know if you spend more than you earn you go into debt.

Why can't Congress figure it out?

UPDATE: Maybe the President has.
