This was a vote to raise the statutory debt limit.

Many had voted for the deficit spending that necessitated this increase in the statutory debt limit. Days earlier, ten Republicans joined all Democrats to change the Senate rules for this joint resolution so that it would pass, but then voted against final passage here.
