WHIP COUNT: House lawmakers' positions on GOP's ‘Plan B’


House Republicans are trying to pass Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) so-called Plan B bill on the fiscal cliff, a measure that would partially avoid the cliff by making permanent tax rates on annual income up to $1 million.

Republicans can afford only 24 defections if every Democrat votes no. Democratic leadership is whipping against the bill, though it remains unclear if the entire Democratic Caucus will oppose it. The bill could hit the House floor on Thursday.
They can't even pass a bill amongst themselves that the Democrats will reject out of hand!
How radical is the GOP these days?

THEY are the ones out of control.
