Boehner may need 37 Tea Party votes to get any debt-ceiling hike through the House
Figure it out:
There are 240 House Republicans, 60 of whom are Tea Party people.
Absent any Democratic votes, House Speaker John Boehner will need 37 Tea Partiers on his side to gain approval for any measure that increases the debt ceiling. But Boehner already has said that all but one of the Tea Party members in his caucus refuse to support ANY hike in the debt ceiling.
What to do, what to do!
