Am I right that the USA is the only country with something as stupid as a "debt ceiling"?

Or is there another country where the politicians have to argue over what they're going to do and then argue again over how to pay for the things they just agreed they were going to do?

So far as I'm aware in every other country you argue over how you're going to pay for it _at the same time_ - and either pass it, or don't.

Or am I missing something?
