HOUSE PASSES ‘CLEAN’ DEBT CEILING BILL

The House has passed a “clean” bill to extend the debt limit until March, 2015 by a vote of 221-201. The vast majority of Republicans voted against the bill, while nearly 200 Democrats carried it across the finish line. 28 Republicans voted “yes.” Speaker John Boehner, who usually does not vote, voted “yes,” as did Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Whip Kevin McCarthy. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan voted “no.” Cantor blamed the debt ceiling increase on Democrats. “House Republicans need more responsible and willing partners in Washington so we can finally and boldly address our long term debt crisis,” he said in a statement.  Ryan called the vote a “missed opportunity.” “We need to pay our bills today and make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow,” Ryan said in a statement after the vote.  The House GOP’s inability to force even a modest fight on the debt ceiling prompted an outcry from conservative groups, including several calls to replace the current House leadership.  “Today, Republican ‘leadership’ in the House completely gave up fighting for the priorities of the American people and once again caved to the demands of President Obama and the Democrats. This latest failure is just more proof that it’s time to dump the GOP leadership in Congress,” said ForAmerica Chairman Brent Bozell. The 28 Republicans who voted “yes”:
