Will Speaker Boehner be able to get enough votes to pass bill?

Members of the House of Representatives are scheduled to cast a pivotal vote on House Speaker John Boehner's debt plan today, as divisive infighting over raising the debt ceiling continues amongst House Republicans.

The House vote will be a major test for whether the GOP caucus can push through the Boehner measure in the face of an expected unified Democratic opposition.

Jonathan Allen, senior congressional reporter for Politico, joins American Morning today to discuss the latest in the debt-ceiling negotiations and to weigh in on whether or not Boehner's plan will be able to get enough votes to pass.
