(Worthy News) – House Speaker Kevin McCarthy beat back a revolt from conservative Republicans and opposition from progressive Democrats on Wednesday to pass his bipartisan debt-limit deal.

In a 314-to-117 vote, the House backed legislation to raise the debt limit until January 2025. The legislation now heads to the Senate where it is expected to be voted on before the June 5 default deadline.

“To continue Washington’s spending addiction is both irresponsible and just wrong,” said Mr. McCarthy, California Republican. “I’ll be honest, tonight’s bill doesn’t stop it. But for the first time, we begin to turn the ship.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
