What does raising the debt ceiling mean

i want to know what it means to raise the debt ceiling?

Raising the debt ceiling refers to increasing the maximum amount of debt that the US government can take on. It is actually the duty of the Congress to set that amount. In 2010 the U.S. national debt ceiling was set at $14.29 trillion.

We get more money from china at a low intrest rate, and that means they own us a little more!
