Boehner Plans To Bring Senate's Latest Plan To A Vote, Which Could End Shutdown And Raise Debt Limit
That means that the bill will likely pass with support from both Democratic and Republican Representatives, though without the backing of the far-right tea party contingent that has so far blocked all progress by successfully convincing Boehner not to bring any legislation to a vote.
Boehner is also reportedly considering having the House vote first on the bill before sending it to the Senate. This hurries the process along (which we need as we near the deadline and the markets start to panic) by letting the Senate take only one filibuster vote.
The Senate is expected to pass the bill and send it to the President’s desk.
Of course, this could still very well fall apart: Boehner could back out of his agreement to bring the bill to the floor, or he could decide he wants to add new caveats into it. Nothing is a done deal.
