WASHINGTON - ? There is less than one week away until the United States goes bust and this morning a vote on the debt crisis has now been postponed. House Republicans were expected to vote today on a plan to increase the debt ceiling.

The vote has been delayed until at least tomorrow.

Tea Party lawmakers want the balanced budget amendment to pass before voting on debt limits.

The plan appears to lack the two thirds majority needed.
