House Republicans Will Try To Pass "Clean" Debt Ceiling Bill This Evening

Vote moved because of East Coast snow storm


House Republicans are abandoning their plan to tie a debt limit increase to a restoration of military pension cuts, and will instead try to pass a "clean" debt limit bill on Tuesday night.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) made the announcement in a private party meeting Tuesday morning at the Capitol Hill Club. The vote was moved from Wednesday to Tuesday because of an impending snow storm on the East Coast.
