(Worthy News) – The House voted Tuesday to extend the nation’s borrowing limit until early December, clearing the measure for President Joe Biden’s signature and averting a default that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned could happen as soon as Oct. 18.

The measure, which passed 219 to 206 with no Republicans voting in favor, provides Yellen $480 billion in new borrowing authority, but the temporary extension means Congress must address a major fiscal cliff in a matter of weeks.

A short-term measure to keep the federal government funded also expires on Dec. 3. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
