Democrats in The House Pass a $1.9 Trillion Debt Ceiling Increase

Democrats in The House followed their counter parts in the Senate and pass a $1.9 trillion increase to the United State's debt ceiling. While there were Democrats that voted against the measure, everyone voting in favor was a Democrat. No Republicans joined the Democrats in passing this bill. By Obama's own admission, all be it from a few years ago, raising the debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.

"Today the United States House of Representative voted to increase the national debt limit to $14,294,000,000,000 by a 217-212 vote. All the “ayes” were Democrats, even after the election of Scott Brown."
