Debt ceiling raised with no challenge

Posted: 02/12/14 09:54

The GOP-controlled House has backed away from a battle over the government's debt cap and passed a measure to raise the debt ceiling for 13 months. Twenty-eight Republicans voted yes. Nebraska’s 3rd District Congressman was not one of them—he said, “It defeats the purpose of a debt limit to simply raise the borrowing authority without doing anything to address the drivers of our long-term deficit.” The bill now heads to the Senate.
