BOEHNER: Screaming Hell no you cant! Ah, the good old days.
  • BOEHNER: Screaming "Hell no you can't!" Ah, the good old days.
Slate has a running update of the debt ceiling debate in Washington. So far it looks like Speaker of the House John Boehner will have the votes in the House to pass his plan. Sen. Harry Reid has said the bill will be defeated when considered in the Senate.

"As soon as the House completes its vote tonight, the Senate will move to take up that bill," Reid said on the Senate floor. "It will be defeated. No Democrat will vote for a short-term Band-Aid that would put our economy at risk and put the nation back in this untenable situation a few short months from now."

Just keep refreshing the page for updates.
