US President Barack Obama speaks on the economy at the Safeway Distribution Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on February 18, 2014. US Republicans capitulated to Obama's call to extend the nation's borrowing authority with no strings attached, dialing back the threat of an election-year fiscal showdown. The House of Representatives narrowly approved a measure to suspend the US debt ceiling until March 2015. It now moves to the Senate, which will begin debating the bill Wednesday.
