House Headed for Dramatic Evening Vote

National Journal reports the House of Representatives will vote on Speaker John Boehner's debt plan sometime after the financial markets close, likely between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

According to Politico, Boehner acknowledged to his colleagues this morning, "We do not have the votes yet."

Boehner can only afford to have 23 Republicans vote against the bill and a Think Progress whip count finds that 23 have already said they would vote against it.
