The House has easily passed a bill extending the federal debt limit, but it's headed to the Senate with conditions.  Oregon Congressman Greg Walden says it will withhold Congressional paychecks unless the Senate approves a federal budget, something it has not done in three years.  Oregon Democrat Kurt Schrader agrees that the Senate needs to find a way to end its gridlock.  Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said the chamber would immediately move to advance the legislation to the White House, which has announced that Obama would sign it.
