The crucial senate vote is underway right now.

So will Florida senate leaders support the measure? The majority Democratic senate needs 60 votes to pass the debt compromise, which means every vote counts.    

Florida Senator Bill Nelson is on board and plans to vote yes but Junior Senator, Marco Rubio opposes raising the debt ceiling and says he will vote no.

Rubio is calling for tax reform and a complete overhaul of how Washington spends your money.

He made a passionate speech on the senate floor, and even called out President Obama. 

"I found some pretty extremist quotes!  Here's one.  Let me read it for you.  It says, 'The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership's failure.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.  Americans deserve better.  I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit."  A quote from a Tea Party extremist, right?  No.  This is a quote from March 16th of 2006, from Senator Barack Obama of Illinois," Rubio said.    

Senator Rubio is the only member of the South Florida congressional delegation who has promised to hold out on a vote.
