    Update: As expected, debt ceiling does not pass. Final roll call: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll379.xml

    • Nay (Republicans 236, Democrats 82), total: 318

    • Yea (Republicans 0, Democrats 97), total: 97

    • Not Voting (Republicans 3; Democrats 6); 9

    As we reported first today, http://www.zerohedge.com/article/debt-c ... iling-vote any minute now the Congress will pretend to vote on HR1954, a clean debt ceiling increase of $2.4 trillion to $16.7 trillion. This will not pass. Why Congress is doing this bullshit, and why the US debt ceiling is now nothing but a farce, is a question voters should ask themselves next time they vote for their representatives. Watch the tragicomedy live at C-Span below.

    Most Americans were against raising the debt ceiling.

    this was a Test Vote to put the pressure on Obama and the Dems that it is not going to happen without serious deficit reduction

    this was just to let everyone know where they stand... the Republicans pushed it and Pelosi did her little hissy fit as the last speaker on the floor
