  •  Could the House GOP alternative to the sequester (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    even pass now?

    Their replacement for the sequester barely passed in the last Congress, 215-209.

    And this Congress has 8 more Democrats.

    Of the 6 reps not voting, three were Republicans, and only two of them are still in office.  

    I wonder if this is why the GOP is standing firm on the sequester(they dont have the vote on their own for a replacement), and why Dems feel they can get more revenue(GOP will need Dems votes for an alternative).
