Does Boehner Have the Votes?

Think Progress says 25 House Republicans have now come out against House Speaker John Boehner's debt ceiling plan. He can afford to lose no more than 23 of his members assuming no Democrat supports the bill.

The Hill and National Journal have 22 House Republicans voting against.

Meanwhile, Roll Call reports House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predicts Republicans "will not win with Democratic votes."

Update: The Washington Post reports the House vote has been postponed as GOP leaders scramble to find support.
