In a victory for President Obama, House Speaker John Boehner this evening is moving a “clean” increase the debt limit, failing to tie it to any spending cuts, changes in Obamacare or any of the other ideas previously backed or considered by Republicans.
Republican leaders expect the measure to pass with Democratic and some Republican support. They most recently had considered tying to the debt limit a restoration of military pension benefits that had been cut, but they abandoned the idea this morning.
Obama had vowed not to negotiate on the debt limit. His strategy succeeded.
The House Wednesday will depart for a two week recess.
UPDATE: The bill, which lifts the ceiling for a year, passed 221-201, with a few Republicans joining nearly all Democrats.
