Wednesday House Vote on Boehner's Debt-Ceiling Bill Postponed

The House Rules Committee will not report out a rule Tuesday evening on House Speaker John Boehner's deficit-reduction package to lift the debt ceiling, postponing a scheduled Wednesday vote on the plan, according to three GOP sources. An announcement is expected later tonight. The postponement is related to a Congressional Budget Office report released earlier on Tuesday that said Boehner's plan would achieve $150 billion below the $1 trillion in deficit reduction House Republicans have promised. The decision throws the fate of the plan in flux, with GOP aides working into the evening in search of additional savings, the sources said.
