House Passes $2.1 Trillion U.S. Debt-Limit Increase Plan

Aug. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The House approved legislation to raise the U.S. debt limit by at least $2.1 trillion and cut federal spending by $2.4 trillion or more, one day before a threatened default.

The House voted 269-161 for the plan negotiated by leaders and President Barack Obama over the weekend. The measure goes to the Senate for a final vote planned tomorrow.
