Senate votes to increase debt limit
The Senate voted today in favor of a bill to increase the debt limit.
About a dozen Republicans joined Democrats to overcome Senator Ted Cruz's filibuster of the bill giving the Democratic-led Senate the 60 votes it needed to move forward with a vote on the measure.
The House passed the bill Tuesday.
The measure allows the government to borrow more money to pay its bill through March 2015.
It now goes to President Obama for approval.
