GOP infighting again, woo! RT : Boehner, Ryan: yes. Rubio, Cantor: no. Very interesting.

President Obama will react to the House vote at 11:20 p.m. in the Brady Briefing Room.

Bill is passing. One consequence: Boehner's Rs will be out for blood with the next debt-ceiling fight.

RT : Paul Ryan voted yes? Hell just froze over
Tonight’s bipartisan vote is a victory for the middle class. Also a victory for President and VP who kept their promise to American people.

Vote Breakdown: Yeas -> 85 GOP, 172 Dems. Nays -> 151 GOP, 16 Dems. Total 257 Yeas/167 Nays.  
House approves sweeping tax deal
House votes to block salary hike for federal workers, members of Congress
