  •  Yes, Boehner is the wild card. (4+ / 0-)

    Whether he has the capital to get this passed in the House is very much the question, I think.

    I expect he is going to have trouble; as near as I can tell, he has no allies on the other side of the aisle, and precious few on his own side.  On top of that, this is Canto's big opportunity, the one he's been waiting for since last fall.  Both he and the POTUS know exactly who they're trying to deal with, and they are not rational.

    •  It is SO important for House Dems (0+ / 0-)

      to vote against this bill. I mean certainly because the bill is a disaster, but also for political reasons. If they vote for this bill, it will be hung around their necks for 2012. By the Republicans, who are PRAYING they can get away without voting for the hot potato. It is SO IMPORTANT. I hope they realize it.
