    it doesn't get any Republican votes.  And it doesn't pass the House.  Even if Boehner is willing to bring it up for a vote.

    And Boehner won't bring it up for a vote if he's only going to get 23 Republican votes.  

    •  Boehner can wait (0+ / 0-)

      Til the new congress.  He'll have 201 votes at minimum (201 Dems plus himself).  At that point all he will need is 16 more.

      If he doesn't bring a bill up for a vote then nothing gets done and the millionaires will all be coming down on him to do something.
