Senate Approves Debt Deal

In a 74-26 vote, the Senate has passed the debt deal that passed the House last night. The bill now awaits Obama’s signature.

Most troubling about the vote is a report from The Weekly Standard that fiscal conservatives who opposed the debt deal would be barred from serving on the join committee that will be formed to make spending cut recommendations. Some of the key Senators that would be barred from the committee would Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Mike Lee–all opposed the bill today.
