Flashback: Previous Debt Limit Votes Have Not Been Good Ones

This flashback is too important to not re-post, as it shows hypocrisy is alive and well in the District of Corruption.
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” - Senator Barack Obama, March 20, 2006, after voting against a debt limit increase.
What has changed since?  Then-Senator Obama became President.
