    Night of the living Boehner bill? // Update – No Vote Tonight

    Night of the living Boehner bill? // Update – No Vote Tonight

    Supposedly the bill will come to a vote tonight in the House, and Harry Reid plans to kill it soon after.

    Why doesn’t the House just wait until the morning to move it over to the Senate (help here, can the House sit on it overnight once it passes?) so that all the morning headlines are that the bill passed?

    Consider this an open thread with updates when and it anything happens. Keep us all informed in the comments too.

    Update 10:25 p.m. :  It’s being widely reported that there will be no House vote tonight.

    If there is no vote tonight, that is a Tea Party victory. Don’t sign off on anything but CC&B. Boehner and his RINO pals got themselves in any box they are in so let them figure out how to get out of it and resubmitting CC&B.

    To quote the always reliable Will Rogers:

    “If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can’t it get us out?””

    If Boehner had pushed McConnell to pass CC&B half as hard as he has attacked the RSC this might have turned out differently.

    The battle should be in the Senate over CC&B and not against conservatives in the House…

    Get Boehner’s bill passed and tell Reid and Obama if it doesn’t get past the Senate then they own the disaster and will be judged on their collective failure to do their jobs. The GOP has defined what its plan would be and now Obama, Reid, and the Socialists need to define what their budget goals would be. No more verbal jousting from them, they need to lay it out what their plans are.

    Sarah Palin’s FB post to the freshmen contained a “P.S.: Everyone I know still believes in contested primaries.”

    To what extent was Palin instrumental in the delay of the vote tonight? Discuss.
