Zeke Miller reporting for the Business Insider, August 1, 2011, that at 7:08 pm today, the House of Representatives, by a margin of 269-161, passed the Obama-GOP debt “compromise” bill to raise the debt limit and supposedly lower the deficit.
7:08pm | The Final Tally:
Allen West was one of the 174 Republican “yes” votes.
The Senate will take up the same bill tomorrow, where it is expected to pass, which means this bill is a done deal.
