The Dems didn’t want to raise the debt limit again until after the 11/2010 elections. It will remind the public how much they’re squandering per day. Having to go down from $1.8T to $300B was a frustrating defeat for them.

That's true, but I think the increases will be gradual over time, say every 3 months.

You may be right, but no politicians want to vote for more debt in election years. It tends to get them voted out.
