They are two separate issues the dems are boot strapping together. The debt ceiling does not have to be raised to fund the government. They can avoid the shutdown by passing a budget without raising the debt ceiling (that isn't even reached for several more months). The dems are trying to force the increase in debt so they can do another reconciliation end run on their $3.5T infrastructure bill. The dems are the ones who are being reckless by trying to extort an unnecessary debt ceiling increase out of a budget bill.
