Technically, the answer is to abolish the debt limit in total. There should be no artificial limit on the debt that is needed to service our obligations. All it does is initiate yet another round of Kabuki theater regarding the budgeting process. If Congress does not want to borrow so much, it needs to not spend so much and also it must collect enough revenue from the people in the system. Cutting taxes may feel good but if we have to borrow money to make up the shortfall perhaps you should not cut taxes so deeply.
