Raising the Debt Ceiling - House of Representatives Took a Vote!

House of Representatives needed 216 votes to pass the bill to a Senate. Thankfully to everyone, House was able to pass it with a vote count of 269 for and 161 against. Republicans had voted 174 for and 66 against, while Democrats votes split with equal votes for and against the bill. Now it is the time for Senate to take a vote, reportedly the vote is possible tonight.
