How Many Votes Does Boehner Actually Have To Deliver To Pass A Fiscal Cliff Bill?

Like 20? I mean, it's not like he has to bring 200 Republicans to the table. If he can get a deal that is pretty crappy from his point of view, all he needs is a handful of his caucus and the Democrats can do the rest.

It's pretty pathetic that a 50-50 (or less, from our point of view) deal can't bring over a 1/10th of the House republicans.

2. You have raised the most salient point. Yes, all the Dems plus 20 some odd of the Republicans

can began to produce laws again. Whether that will happen is far from clear.
