The U.S. Senate votes 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 Senate the 60 votes needed to move the measure forward.

The House passed the bill Tuesday. It now goes to President Obama for approval.
