RANT: Debt Ceiling; what joke!

House Votes to Suspend Debt Ceiling Until March 2015
The House voted to suspend the nation’s borrowing limit until March 16, 2015, without any policy conditions, a tactical retreat by Republicans stymied by their internal divisions.

The bill cleared the House in a 221-201 vote, relying on the support of a majority of Democrats and pushing the next debate over the issue until after the 2014 midterm elections. Most Republicans opposed the debt-ceiling suspension, which came to the floor without any of the policy proposals they hoped would sweeten its sting for conservatives.

The measure now heads to the Democratic-controlled Senate, where leaders have expressed optimism it will soon pass.
