Senate passes debt deal; House votes next
NBC News: The Senate voted 81-18 to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling. 
President Barack Obama spoke from the White House after the Senate’s vote, saying he will sign the bill as soon as it arrives on his desk. The House is expected to vote on the measure tonight.

“There’s a lot of work ahead of us, including our need to earn back the trust of the American people that’s been lost over the last few weeks,” he said. “And we can begin to do that by addressing the real issues that they care about.”
After a long and tedious process, the Senate compromise is only a short-term deal allowing the federal government to operate through January 15, and conservatives who fought to de-fund or delay Obamacare have had to concede defeat. NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell reports.


The House is expected to approve the bill and send it to the president’s desk for signature within hours.
