Do they need 218, or a simple majority?

Who are they?

Can't know yet. But we'll know soon.

If it's this close in the House I don't think it'll pass the Senate. It's too far left even for them.

I assume some of those RINOS are giving political cover for a few more Dems to vote ‘no’... while still letting the bill pass.

Just a guess.

Now they’re probably moving votes around to protect the most vulnerable Dems.

8 now, one switched their vote; but as it stands right now, dems win; two or three more pubbies need to change their vote at the last minute.

It’s done — passed.

Assuming it really is over then they were the deciding factor. I hope it was worth their careers to them.

Listening to Pence on the Levin show, I see there's a several minute delay on C-SPAN.

Now Weiner taking over for Tauscher, as she steps down from the House?

“Will it pass in the Senate?”

This just in from MM (we can only hope):

“Passing President Obama’s “cap and trade” energy program would cost the average Oklahoma family $3,200 a year, Sen. Jim Inhofe said Friday, but he’s confident the measure will be killed in the Senate no matter what happens in the House of Representatives.”
