GOP senators block Schumer's vote on debt

United States Senate Republicans blocked on Tuesday the proposal of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to hold a simple majority vote to raise the federal debt limit.

Schumer previously announced the attempt, while multiple reports hinted shortly after that his move will be opposed by the Republicans.

The Democrat's suggestion would have allowed his party to accept the measure without securing the usual 60-vote majority first.
