The conservative civil war over the Boehner plan continues today as the speaker tries to cobble together a majority for his proposal to raise the debt limit. The Club for Growth has reiterated its opposition to the plan, while conservative columnist George Will urged Tea Party activists to take what they can get. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan has argued that the Boehner plan achieves two-thirds of the discretionary spending cuts contained in his own budget.
The vote looks like it will go down to the wire, though there are some signs momentum is shifting in John Boehner’s favor. If it passes, there’s a decent chance some hybrid of the Reid and Boehner plans will reach the president’s desk.
