House Debt Ceiling Bill
C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the conclusion of the program.
Russell Berman talked about House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to allow a vote to raise the debt ceiling in a “clean” bill, i.e., containing no policy attachments. The House approved the measure 221-201 the previous day. Other topics included the upcoming Senate vote on the bill, and the election-year politics of voting in favor or raising the debt ceiling.
