US Congress instituted a "debt ceiling" in 1917 to make it easier to finance mobilization efforts in World War I, while managing the budget. Before that, Congress generally had to authorize each bond issue. The debt ceiling was raised at least 90 times in the 20th century. The last raise occurred this year in June.
