INTERVIEW: Congresswoman Hanabusa talks debt ceiling vote

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Congress is set to vote on a last-minute debt ceiling deal on Monday after political leaders reached an agreement Sunday night.

President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner say the deal isn't perfect, but it will extend the debt limit through 2012.

But with a Tuesday deadline will the bill be able to pass through both the U.S. House and Senate?

Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa joined us live by phone from Capitol Hill to talk about the matter.
