House to Vote on Boehner's Bill

After much infighting, Republicans have agreed to vote on House Speaker John Boehner's revamped budget plan, which would cut the deficit $917 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office, while raising the debt ceiling for six months. The Senate Democrats, meanwhile, are unanimous in their opposition to the plan, with even independents Joe Lieberman and Bernie Sanders promising to block it. Harry Reid's plan would save $2.2 trillion over 10 years, according to the CBO.
