House Republicans now plan a Thursday vote on their Budget Control Act, after the Congressional Budget Office said it would not save $1.2 trillion over 10 years, but only $850 billion.
That announcement prompted House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to rework his bill to make sure it meets the $1.2 trillion in cuts, which means the bill will not be ready for a planned Wednesday vote.
"As we speak, Congressional staff are looking at options to adjust the legislation to meet our pledge," Boehner Spokesman Michael Steel said earlier Tuesday.
Plans to hold the vote Thursday implies that House Republicans will put out a revised bill late Tuesday night, to meet their three-calendar day pledge. Under that pledge, a bill introduced anytime Tuesday can be considered on Thursday.
