Reid: Senate to Vote on House Debt Bill Thursday Night

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that he would move to bring up Speaker John Boehner’s short-term plan to raise the debt ceiling Thursday evening in order to quickly defeat it.

“As soon as the House completes its vote tonight, the Senate will move to take up that bill,” the Nevada Democrat announced on the Senate floor. “It will be defeated. No Democrat will vote for a short-term Band-Aid that would put our economy at risk and put the nation back in this untenable situation a few short months from now.”
