178-Member Bloc of 240 House GOPs Oppose Boehner Plan

 

According to a post on The Wall Street Journal by Corey Boles and Naftali Bendavid, a bloc of 178 of the 240 House Republicans is against the Bohehner plan.  They write: "The House vote on Mr. Boehner's plan would immediately raise the government's $14.29 trillion borrowing limit by around $1 trillion and provide for another increase of as much as $1.5 trillion next year." But without those 178 votes, the plan seems poised for defeat.
