Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling when Bush was in power...

(The Examiner) ...Obama in 2006, while serving as an Illinois senator... joined all Senate Democrats to oppose the 2006 debt limit increase.

“Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren,” Obama said in 2006. “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.”

Yet anoter law of American politics: The party in power will raise the debt ceiling.
