UPDATE and CORRECTION: House Vote Count

Here is an update and correction of the vote count on Boehner's House debt ceiling vote from the Hill.  See

My last post was incorrect.  Here are the numbers according to the Hill as of 4:15PM.  These are counts of Republican votes only.  Boehner needs 217 votes to pass the legislation.  He can afford to lose only 23 Republican votes.  Right now, the Hill says 24 Republicans are against/leaning NO.

Expected to vote yes: 118
Plan to vote yes: 57
Leaning yes: 6
Sub-total YES: 181

Undecided: 33

Against/Leaning NO: 25
