Two Down, One To Go

The US Senate has just passed the debt deal by over 60 votes, putting it roughly on the same percentage as it passed by in the House. It now goes to President Obama for his signature.


Considering that if he vetoes it, he would pretty much have to give up his combination birthday party and re-election fundraiser later this week, along with how he’d have to give up the opportunity to lecture us all again about how it’s not a great deal but necessary and how it would be so much better if we just let him have his way, I feel fairly comfortable saying he will sign it.


Update: Final vote 74-26.
