Why are democrats so petrified of and embarassed by a brief

government shutdown, but seemingly unapologetic and unembarassed by a 17 trillion dollar debt?

I would be embarassed to have to tell someone, "Hey, I only make X per year, but I have run up this huge debt of Y that I can never hope to pay." I would feel an embarassment and fear that people would believe that something was wrong with me. i would fear that people would see me as immature or irresponsible at the very least, and maybe even mentally unstable or manic depressive (many manic depressives run up unpayable debts during the manic stage). If in the next breath, I mentioned to that very someone that I was about to buy a very expensive shiney brand new vehicle (Obamacare), the I would most certainly expect them to consider me ill.

Why the lack of shame or self awarness by these seemingly rational and intellegent people?
