    I'd be shocked if only 0 house GOPers vote for it, but I don't know why I'm shocked any more.

    •  I think there will be closer to 100 GOP House (1+ / 0-)

      but that's just a complete guess on my part.  I just hope Daines, Cotton, Cassidy all vote against it.  Though if I was to bet, Daines will definitely vote for it with Cotton up in the air and Cassidy definitely a No because he still have to worry about primary challenges.

        I have no basis for my guess either...drawing numbers out of a hat :-)

      •  I'm predicting a little more than bare minimum (1+ / 0-)

        20-30. I think that group is the one that are in the most moderate house seats, so they will support it.

        I think the vast majority, more worried about primary challenges, will have hold back, wait until the yeas hit 217, and then vote no.

        •  Also, House leadership isn't doing anything (1+ / 0-)

          No formal whip count.
          I even see a chance that House leadership will split on it.  
          Combine that with Heritage Action and CfG "keying" no votes on it, I think Boehner might have to cast one of those votes himself and Pelosi and her team will have to bring every single Democrat on board.

          But this is all just speculation on my part.
