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.
