McConnell is punting because the GOP leadership knows they lack support within their own caucus to increase the debt ceiling under any circumstances – even pretty favorable ones to them and their constituencies. 

Even Reagan raised taxes when he had too. I think these guys know it’s going to happen now too, and they’re just structuring everything to be the President’s fault politically. GOP leadership knows default isn’t an option. The rank and file truly believe it is -or should be.

Hence, a punt.
