  •  any deal needs 50% republicans (0+ / 0-)

    To even come to a vote. That is the way they played it in the debt ceiling fight.  If Boehner allows this to get passed with only 15% republican support he loses his job. Gerrymandering, incumbency, and dark money means that the middle of the republican party can stay on the other side of crazy and not worry about consequence. My take anyway.
