Senate just voted to table the Boehner bill. No surprise, but the vote was 59-41, which means some Republicans voted to table it. (Added, the Republican votes to table were DeMint, Hatch, Lee, Graham, Vitter, Paul,)
Claire McCaskill is complaining the Mitch McConnell told Harry Reid that he will not negotiate with Reid.
Are we better off that the Boehner bill passed the House? I say absolutely, the narrative is that the House passed a debt ceiling extension and the Senate killed it.
