House vote on Boehner plan postponed

(CNN) - House Republicans are delaying a vote scheduled for Thursday evening on Speaker John Boehner's latest debt ceiling proposal, according to a statement from the chamber's second-ranking Democrat. A Republican source said the vote would still happen Thursday night.

The move indicated possible difficulty in lining up sufficient Republican support to pass the measure.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The House of Representatives is expected to vote Friday on a massive plan to pump government cash into the lending industry, Democratic leadership aides told CNN Wednesday.

The House dramatically rejected an earlier version of the plan on Monday, dealing a stinging defeat to the White House and Congressional leaders, who had spent more than a week negotiating the deal.
