House Votes to Lift Debt Ceiling

Congress will have to address the situation again in December.

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed the $480 billion debt limit increase in a vote of 219-206. The temporary measure moves the default deadline from October 18 to December 3.

“We have temporarily averted crisis ahead of next week’s deadline, but come December, members of Congress will need to choose to put country before party and prevent default,” said Representative Richard Neal of Massachusetts, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of Congress as they continue to consider the president’s spending legislation.
  • For Speaker Pelosi to seek the Lord’s guidance as she leads the House.
  • For Senate Majority Leader Schumer as he bring bills to a vote.
