Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) insisted on a 60-vote threshold for the Senate to proceed with the clean debt-ceiling bill which ended up passing Wednesday. "Republicans should stand together and do the right thing. We should have every Republican stand together and follow the responsible course of action, which is to insist on meaningful spending reforms before raising the debt ceiling," Cruz stated. Since the Democratic caucus is only 55-member, the threshold meant at least five GOP members would have to support the bill in order for it pass.
