The story of the life and death of the latest plan from House Republicans can be told in three tweets:
Leadership sources: no snags right now on informal whip count, legislation continues to move twd floor, vote coming later
At least this time Boehner didn't get the vote all the way to the floor before having to pull it. He killed it before it got that far, so maybe he's learning. He could, however, learn just a little bit faster. Because Oct. 17 is the day after tomorrow, and because avoiding global economic disaster is now going to depend on the Senate—the Senate
—acting with unprecedented speed.
Tell John Boehner: Put a clean funding bill up for a vote.
