Boehner: Dems Don’t Have Votes to Pass Climate Bill
At a morning press conference, the first question to House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) was whether he thinks the Democrats, who hope to bring a sweeping climate change bill to a House floor vote tomorrow, have the numbers to pass it. The response:
Boehner: Well, first, let’s not — I don’t know whether it’s going to come up or not. Rumors, they’re clearly pushing to bring it up, but we’ll see. I don’t think they have the votes yet.
Reporter: You don’t — you don’t think they have the votes?
Boehner: No, I do not.
If this bill isn’t diluted enough to pass even the House, where Democrats have a whopping 77-seat advantage, wait until this bill hits the Senate.
