Well, that's what ThinkProgress is now reporting.

RT @thinkprogress: UPDATE: 26 House GOPers oppose Boehner plan. Headed toward failure if positions hold. http://thkpr.gs/...
6 minutes ago

Clicking on the link, the timestamp is 10:57 AM. Earlier today, however, when this was posted, the number was only 23. Look at the recent updates, which seem to suggest that Boehner's plan might not even pass.

The three most recent updates:

UPDATE
The Hill is also reporting that Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) is also leaning no on the Boehner plan.
UPDATE
The Texas Tribune reports that Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) is also leaning no on the Boehner plan .
UPDATE
Dan Boren (D-OK), a Democratic House member who voted for Cut, Cap and Balance, will vote no on the Boehner plan. ThinkProgress confirmed his position with his office. Additionally, Greg Sargent of the Washington Post says no democrats will vote for the bill.

These updates were not there when I checked about an hour ago. A failure of the Boehner plan would have massive political ramifications, and just might mean that Reid's plan (already a watered down compromise, yes, but better than compromising again) might get some life to pass. Republicans, or at least the ones with a bit of sanity left, will not allow the country to fail with the blame squarely on their party.

...hopefully.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
