Robert Romano: House Republicans Hold Majority, but Democrats Hold Power

February 25, 2014

The Republican House leadership decided to allow a vote on suspending the debt ceiling until 2015, and the measure barely squeaked through with only 28 votes from House Republicans and overwhelming support from Democrats. The measure was "clean," meaning there were no spending concessions demanded in exchange for allowing the government to keep borrowing money. Robert Romano of Americans for Limited Government says Democrats really control the House even though Republicans have the majority.
