House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has said Democrats may have to delay a health care vote scheduled for Saturday until Sunday or early next week, according to the Associated Press, because they don’t yet have the 218 votes needed to pass the bill.
Eric Cantor, the House Minority Whip, has said that he’s confident that no Republican would vote for the bill, meaning that Democrats cannot lose more than 40 votes. When “cap and trade” passed the House in June, 44 Democrats voted against it, but the leadership made up for it by the defections of 8 Republicans.
