Boehner: ‘It’s A Zippity-Do-Da Day!’

That’s what Speaker Boehner told one of our reporters as he was walking into a meeting of his caucus a short time ago. And indeed it is. Boehner’s plan for cutting spending and raising the debt limit is set for a vote late this afternoon, which could mean it won’t come up until this evening. In the meantime, it’ll be a furious day of whipping votes to make sure he gets this bill across the finish line. We’ll bring you all the latest as it happens.
