Cyprus Lawmakers Reject Bailout Plan

Hemera/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- Lawmakers in Cyprus have voted against a plan to raid ordinary citizens' bank accounts so the country can pay off debts.

Cyprus could eventually default and pull out of the euro, which, economists say, could eventually affect the U.S. economy.
