The recent debt ceiling debate between Democrats and Republicans has invited dissident voices within the GOP, fracturing the party's image of solidarity.  House Republican leaders delayed a vote on their plan to raise the debt ceiling Monday night after opposition from dissenting conservatives in the party. Last night House Speaker John Boehner was reportedly able to convince  a growing number of House members to get behind the plan –  but only reluctantly. The Takeaway's Washington correspondent,  Todd Zwillich,  and Republican strategist  Ron  Christie,  CEO of Christie Strategies and author of "Acting White: The Curious History of a Racial Slur"  talk about whether this in-party fighting will damage the GOP's brand and political clout.
