House passes revised Boehner debt plan with 218-210 vote – 22 Republicans voted against the measure

Twenty-two Republicans voted against the House Bill.  No democrats voted for the the Debt Plan.

House Republicans on Friday narrowly approved legislation authorizing a limited increase in the $14.3 trillion debt limit in exchange for more than $900 billion in spending cuts.

The 218-210 vote occurred nearly a full day after it was originally scheduled as Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) agreed to revise the legislation to win enough conservative support to carry the House.

The Republican Budget Control Act faces a near-certain demise in the Senate, where Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has declared it dead on arrival. The White House has said President Obama would veto the measure if it ever reached his desk.
