    anyway to get a House vote on it without having GOP leadership blocking it?

    Tom Cole is a hardly a moderate, so if he is saying this, my guess is there is enough GOP support + Dem support to get to 218.

      Unless they can get a majority of the House to sign on as sponsors of the bill, I think.  Then it can come up for a vote.  That would be a huge 'no confidence' vote on Boner.

      to see Pelosi find those 20 or so Repubs to do an end run around Boehner. If she can do that, she becomes the effective speaker of the house.
