Obama to sign debt bill right away - White House
WASHINGTON Aug 2 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will sign into law a bill raising the U.S. government's debt ceiling and cutting spending as soon as it arrives at his desk, White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said on Tuesday.
The U.S. Senate passed the bill to avert a default earlier on Tuesday and sent it to Obama for signing.
Pfeiffer said via Twitter the president would sign the bill as soon as it got to the White House.
