WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 29: Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) talks with reporters after the Senate voted to table the House of Representatives' Budget Control Act at the U.S. Capitol July 29, 2011 in Washington, DC. After much arm-twisting and bargaining, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) was able to gather the 218 votes from his own party members to pass the legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said the House bill will not be considered, creating further stalemate in the growing debt ceiling and budget crisis.
