Aside from completely missing that Bob was joking, you're making the same fallacious argument I've already seen. Yes, a home may be older than the schools. But a 120 year old home MIGHT have a few hundred people go through it over the course of that lifespan. They also have owners that don't have to go to their neighbors and say "please, sir, may I have some more" in order to effect…

How your representatives in Congress voted on the debt ceiling

1 year ago by Bob Gough

Five of the six U.S. Senators representing Missouri, Illinois and Iowa voted to end the partial government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois), Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri), Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) all voted to raise the debt ceiling. 

From U.S. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois - 

"Today Congress put country over party.  I was proud to be a part of the bipartisan group led by Sens. Susan Collins and Joe Manchin, which laid the foundation for this agreement to reopen our government and protect America's full faith and credit. As the debate moves forward in the coming weeks over spending and debt, it is my hope both parties will continue working together on a 'big deal' with spending cuts and reforms to entitlements and the tax code so that we can give our markets and the American people the stability they need and deserve." 

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) voted no.

Congressman Aaron Schock (R-Illinois) and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-Illinois) voted to raise the debt ceiling. 

Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa), Congressman Sam Graves (R-Missouri), Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-Missouri) and Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri) voted no.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) also voted to raise the debt ceiling and blamed House conservatives for the failure.

“It’s been about 30 people that make their money on not hanging with the team. And so that’s on them,” he said.
