Senate Republicans Vote Down Pelosi's Debt Ceiling Bill, As Expected

Having detailed the 'debt limit game of chicken' last week, tonight's vote in the Senate is exactly what was expected.

Senate Republicans on Monday voted down the House-passed bill to fund the government through Dec. 3 and raise the debt limit.

The final vote was 48-50 (60 votes were needed to advance the measure), with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) changing his vote from Yes to No so he could later bring the bill back up for a vote.

"I changed my vote from yes to no in order to reserve the option of additional action on the House-passed legislation. Keeping the government open and preventing a default is vital to our country's future and we'll be taking further action to prevent this from happening this week," Schumer said.

All Republicans voted against the bill as expected.
