Staff report, [email protected]
U.S. Rep. Joe Barton voted against the debt limit extension that passed with a 221-201 vote Tuesday in the House.
Barton joined the majority of Republicans in the House voting against the bill, with 28 colleagues crossing the aisle to side with Democrats, including Speaker John Boehner. Senate Democrats hoped to vote on the legislation early today and send it to President Barack Obama for his signature.
