As it looks now, a revised Boehner bill will get a vote this afternoon and is likely to pass.
In yesterday’s flash poll, here’s how the vote broke down on what the House does next:
I voted for the last option, do nothing until the Senate passes a bill (actually, probably an amendment to the House bill). Until then, there’s nothing for the House to do. Many of you have argued that is what the House should have done after the CCB bill was sent to the Senate; it may have been a tactical error to then draft the Boehner bill, but that error was water under the bridge over a week ago.
It is up to Republicans in the Senate to fight the battle now. Until then, House Republicans should take a break. Because if it comes back as something unacceptable, they are going to have to have the stomach to say no.
