The debt limit argument is an argument that involves incomprehensible technical minutia that would put everybody, except the CPA's, to sleep.
The CR issue is a very elementary argument that has to do with a law from which politicians are being exempted while everyone else is tyrannically forced to participate. Quite simple for everyone - including low-information-voters - to grasp.
Bottom line: Raise the debt ceiling; fight to stop ObamaCare and the growth of govt.
