Vote Tally Update: Boehner plan headed toward failure without Democratic support | John Boehner needs 216 votes to pass his debt limit plan through the House. An examination of public statements and calls to Congressional offices by ThinkProgress reveal that 25 Republicans already oppose the plan. Since there are 240 Republican members of the House, if these positions hold, there are only 215 Republican votes available, and the bill would fail without Democratic support. So far, no Democrats have publicly supported the plan. You can see the complete ThinkProgress report here.
The Texas Tribune reports Francisco Canseco (R-TX) will vote against the plan. This brings the count of House Republicans opposing the Boehner bill to 26.
Tim Scott (R-SC) says on Fox News he will vote against the plan. However, the count remains at 26, due to reports that Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN) may have switched from a no to a yes vote.
