Reid: Senate to Defeat Boehner Deficit Bill

Published July 28, 2011

| Reuters

The Democratic-controlled Senate will defeat House Speaker John Boehner's plan to raise the debt ceiling shortly after the Republican-controlled House of Representatives votes on it, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday.

"As soon as the House completes its vote tonight, the Senate will move to take up that bill. It will be defeated," Reid said on the Senate floor.

The House is expected to vote on the measure at roughly 6:00 P.M. EDT. It is not clear whether the measure will survive the vote in the Republican-led House.

House Defeats Reid Bill July 30, 2011

House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday that they are confident they can reach a deal with the White House to end the debt crisis just days before the nation is unable to pay all of its bills.

At a news conference held just minutes after the GOP-led House defeated a Democratic debt-limit bill, McConnell said he has spoken with President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Minutes earlier, the House defeated Reid's bill that would raise the nation's $14.3 trillion debt limit by $2.4 trillion while cutting spending by $2.2 trillion. But the Senate hasn't voted on the bill yet and is planning a test vote in the wee hours of Sunday morning to break a GOP filibuster.
