The Tea Partyers are just loons about this. The debt ceiling is a completely meaningless artifice. The debt is a collection of already existing obligations resulting from prior budgets, bonds, etc. The debt HAS to be honored.

The fact Congress has to cut budgets and/or raise taxes going forward to get the deficit under control is completely unrelated to the issue of honoring existing obligations.
