Will the delayed House vote on Boehner's bill happen today?

More than four hours after lawmakers in the House were expected to vote on Speaker Boehner's plan to raise the debt-ceiling, the GOP caucus announced that they were delaying the vote, revealing a deep rift within the party that could undermine the their latest attempt to avoid a national default.

The House Republican caucus then announced a previously unscheduled meeting for 10 a.m. Friday. In an indication of the seriousness of the debt-ceiling issue in Congress, Reid also announced that Senate Democrats will hold their own meeting at the same time.

David Gergen, CNN senior political analyst, joins Kiran Chetry on American Morning today to discuss what conservatives are finding fault with in Boehner's bill and to weigh in on whether or not it is expected to pass today.

    Don't get all excited about the President announcing a deal is done. Information in the White House follows the intellectual chain of superiority to inferiority. The announced deal information came from Biden to Obama.
