The House narrowly passed Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) debt ceiling bill on Wednesday, handing the Republican leader a key legislative win and setting the stage for him to restart negotiations with the White House before risking a default on the country’s loans.

Lawmakers passed the debt ceiling proposal along party lines with a 217-215 vote, with just four Republicans voting against the measure. The passage comes after days of marathon meetings and hourslong deliberations among Republicans to craft legislation that could give McCarthy leverage as he seeks to make a deal with President Joe Biden.
