Breaking: Ted Cruz to Filibuster Debt Limit Increase

Ted Cruz just sent out this press release.
Senator Cruz will filibuster the debt limit increase.

MSNBC reported:

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz could stage another filibuster – this time in an attempt to raise the debt limit.

House Republicans passed a clean debt-limit bill on Tuesday night, which suspended the country’s borrowing limit until next year on March 15. Republican House Speaker John Boehner blamed Democrats for pushing the vote, which 28 GOP members favored.

The bill on Wednesday moves to the Senate, where lawmakers are expected to pass the legislation later this week.

Cruz plans to object to hold a simple majority vote, thus seeking a 60-vote threshold in the Senate.
