The last time the US Senate got together to vote whether to raise the debt ceiling was March 16, 2006. George W. Bush was President and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were both Senators.
Curious how Obama voted?
He and Every Democrate voted Against raising the debt ceiling, or a 'No' vote while practically Every Republican voted 'Yes'.
Ironically, Every Democrat today is in support of the ceiling raised while many Republicans don't seem to care.
Funny how one's view of default alters based on which party is in the Oval Office.
Here's the official vote breakdown, which ended up winning the day 52-48: (source: http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=109&session=2&vote=00054)
