House GOP demands new tax cut bill

House Republicans are now set to block a two month extension of the payroll tax holiday. A vote is now scheduled for today, after lawmakers scrapped one in the middle of the night. But house speaker John Boehner expects the bill to fail.  Boehner says his members are against kicking the can down the road. Minority leader Pelosi blamed some rogue Republicans for getting in the way.

Jeb Hensarling, chairmen of the House Republican conference, explains to Ali Velshi why House Republicans are demanding a new payroll tax cut bill.
