The Republican Lead House is trying a different approach this week to deal with the nation's debt negotiations.
The speaker says a vote will be held this week on the "Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011". The bill ties a vote on raising the 14.3 trillion dollar debt ceiling to spending cuts, spending caps, and ratification of a balanced budget amendment. Over in the US House, Missouri senator Roy Blunt is co-sponsoring a nearly identical bill.
