Parties Agree on US Debt Ceiling: Don't Raise It

News media may be engaged in distorted reporting regarding the US debt ceiling. In fact, but not reported by the media, Democrats and Republicans appear to agree that the debt ceiling should not be raised. Why is this not reported as a clear fact? Instead, all we hear is words to the effect of "failure to compromise". Compromise on what? The two parties are obviously already in complete agreement -- to wit, the debt ceiling should not be raised. Further, the two opposing political parties are engaged in every conceivable effort to ensure that the debt ceiling will not be raised. All this "need to compromise" talk in media reporting may be just a diversion to hide this complete agreement from the public.
