Moderate Republicans Revolt

"For almost three years, the story in the House has been about Speaker John Boehner's restive right flank causing him problems. But Republican moderates have apparently had enough," National Review reports.

"In what is by far their boldest stand since the GOP took control of the House in 2010, a group of them are threatening to bring down a vote on the rule for the government-funding bill scheduled for 6:30 p.m.... The group told leadership on Saturday they have 25 members who are willing to bring down the rule."

Politico: "If no Democrats vote for the rule, Boehner can only lose 17 Republicans to sink the plan."

Update: The "revolt" fizzled with only six Republicans voting against the rule.
