    "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A measure to extend the U.S. debt limit for nearly four
    months moved closer on Tuesday to a vote and the White House said the president
    would sign the bill if it cleared Congress, easing uncertainty that could have
    threatened the U.S. economy.
    The debt limit "suspension," which would allow the government to borrow money
    until May 19, is due to come to a vote in the Republican-controlled House of
    Representatives on Wednesday without amendments."
