House lawmakers vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling today. 28 Republicans joined nearly all the Democrats in the House to pass the proposal.

It allows the government to continue borrowing money to pay its bills until March 2015. The bill passed without any of the deficit-reduction provisions GOP lawmakers were hoping to add.

The measure now goes to the Senate, which is expected to vote on Wednesday.
