In the middle of the inaugural festivities, Republican officials confirm the House will vote Wednesday on an increase in the nation’s debt limit, a move designed to prevent a first-ever government default, the Associated Press reports.

The vote marks a change in strategy for House Republicans who run the chamber and who remain adamant about reducing government spending but decided not to use the debt limit to trigger a confrontation with President Barack Obama.
