No House Vote On Debt Ceiling Bill Tuesday

Washington (AFP) – The U.S. House of Representatives will not vote Tuesday on a bill to raise the debt ceiling, taking the crisis within hours of a crucial deadline, Republican party officials said.

House leaders shelved plans for a bill that also sought to rein in President Barack Obama’s health care law after apparently failing to win sufficient support from Tea Party conservatives.
