Sen. Pat Toomey is among the midstate Republicans who voted against raising the nation's borrowing limit to avoid a potentially calamitous default
Five of Pennsylvania's 14 Republican members of Congress voted against raising the nation's borrowing limit to avoid a potentially calamitous default and ending the federal government's partial shutdown after 16 days.
Three are from the midstate.
The votes by Senator Pat Toomey and midstate Congressmen Scott Perry, Tom Marino and Joe Pitts put them in the majority of 277 Republicans in Congress who voted "no.''
Meanwhile, nine Republican members of Congress voted to raise the nation's borrowing limit and end the shutdown.
All of six of Pennsylvania's Democrats in Congress voted for the legislation.
