Senate Preparing to Vote on the Debt Deal at Noon

Senate is preparing to vote on a bill, having said so much about it, the deal is bounded to be passed and I do not think that failure is an option at this point, so just interesting to see how each side going to vote.

Update: Senate ha successfully approved the deal(72-26), which moves the bill to the White House, where Obama will need to sign it.

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.

Compromise Has Been Reached

So the compromise between GOP, Democrats, and the White House has been reached. However, Congress, still did not vote on the new proposed bill. Everyone awaits the voting process, as August 2 is getting closer.

House of Representatives about to take a vote on Boehner's debt-ceiling bill - Updating

6:00 PM EST - As it appears, the vote is near and it is believed it should pass the House, but it still largely unknown what Senate is going to do.

6:05 PM EST - Democrat tried to delay with provisional vote, which was defeated by Republicans quickly.

6:14PM EST - 205 for bill now, 29 people did not vote yet, 21of them Republicans.

6:18PM EST - 5 minutes to go, bill needs 4 more votes, 18 people did not vote yet.

6:20PM EST - 218 votes reached, 4 minutes left, if anyone changes their mind, which is unlikely.

6:25PM EST - Bill has officially passed the House, 218 for vs 210 against. None of Democrats has voted for the bill. Now, it is a time for Senate and White House to step it up and try not to kill it, but actually negotiate with Republicans on it. it is not in Obama's interest to lead the country in default!!!

Democrats in Senate say that bill will be "dead on arrival in a Senate".

3 Days Left Until U.S. Government Faces A Default

 It is a time to get something done, or there will be consequences! First of all it is ridiculous how slow the government works, they are debating on this issue for so long and it seems like they can not get anywhere with it.

A New Addition to Manchester City

  It is official, Aguero will be joining Manchester City F.C. and will be wearing the jersey with a number 16. The fee is reported to be the exact number that Atletico Madrid wanted of £38 million. It is rumored that he will be making from £150,000 to £200,000 a week.

Now, after all that official information, I will try to see how he fits in the system.

The Future of Manchester City - Tevez Saga

  Manchester City, a soccer club that is perhaps the most hated team in whole soccer world. In reality, it doesn't matter if you hate them or not, because they are the force everyone has to recognize and whether you like it or not, people want to read about their next big star signings, as well as all the transfer rumors surrounding them.
  Moving on to the upcoming season, I see at as a huge stepping stone to a possible greatness, but there are many obstacles on their way to a top. One of these obstacles of course is the future of the captain of a team(at least for now),Carlos Tevez, who continually wants to leave Manchester, as he is too far from his family, as well as that he finds the City of Manchester to be quite a "boring" town. It is a pity for many fans of the club, as he was quite a prolific sniper for a team scoring 20 goals in 28 appearances in English Premier League, thus leading team to a 3rd place and automatic qualification for Champions League. But he wants to leave, and I believe that he should leave and let Mancini move on without him, as it not going to work out after all that has been said.
