Boehner Debt Limit Vote Postponed…

Posted on July 28, 2011 by


Today we heard that the GOP Representative and House Speaker decided to postpone the voting on his bill concerning the debt limit. Many are saying it’s because the bill doesn’t have enough GOP support. I believe it’s the right move for Boehner to postpone this so that he can get more support then vote so the bill will have more of a chance to pass the house and make it to the Senate.

The news the voting would be postponed came just minutes before the voting on the proposal that would cut roughly $915 billion in spending over the next ten years but only raise the debt ceiling through the end of the calendar year.

Spokesman for Boehner, Eric Cantor (R-Virginia)  said that a vote on Boehner’s proposal would still take place on Thursday night and 3 Boehner aides have said they will be trying to go forward with this bill tonight, according to Fox News! But we’re not EXACTLY sure if this will happen TONIGHT!
