UPDATE: House will vote on debt deal tonight

The Hill reports that the House will vote first on the deficit/debt ceiling deal, probably sometime this evening or later tonight depending upon whether Boehner can round up 217 votes.  Reid wants to vote on the bill in the Senate today also.  Senate seems likely to pass the deal.  House is still uncertain.

Right now The Hill shows 26 YES votes in the House (4 of these are Democrats).
