Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said he is unsure if Boehner's plan will be able to pass in the House. His biggest problem with the proposal is that it requires another debt-ceiling increase in just six months.
When asked why a compromise can't be reached, Van Hollen said he believed the debt-ceiling increase should be separate from discussions to reduce the deficit. He blamed his Republican colleagues for refusing to take a balanced approach.
"We have been met with this total brick wall when it comes trying to make sure that that kind of balance could be enforced," he said.
