House passes revised Boehner bill

By a 218-210 vote, the House of Representatives just passed Speaker John Boehner's revised debt-ceiling legislation.

It was changed on Friday -- adding a constitutional Balanced Budget Amendment -- to secure passage after GOP leaders struggled to get enough votes on Thursday.

No Democrats voted for the legislation, while 22 Republicans voted against it.

After passage, Boehner issued this tweet:

House-passed bill should be passed by the Senate immediately & sent to POTUS, who should sign the bill into law & end this crisis

But it's highly unlikely that Boehner's legislation goes anywhere in the Senate, given that it will take 60 votes to pass anything out of that chamber, and given that the speaker's revision made the legislation more unappealing to Democrats.
