  •  No he isn't (0+ / 0-)

    That's taken into account because the people who are no longer in the House voted in favor by 3-1, IIRC.

    •  But that seems like double counting (0+ / 0-)

      Murtha would have voted yes were he alive today, but he doesn't add to the no column and the vacancy reduces the number of votes required, which means that even when you subtract those 3 votes, you get 217 votes, which is one more than required.  Now, if you add in the switchers, you can still get to 216 even with Stupak and some others switching from yes to no.
