As of this writing, Democrats are confident they have the votes — and it is hard to believe the vote would come up for a vote unless they had the votes:
Democratic leaders expressed confidence Sunday they would get the 216 votes needed to pass historic health care reform legislation in the House, while Republicans promised to keep fighting.
One GOP House member said the party would use “every means at our disposal” to stop the bill from becoming law.
The decisive House vote scheduled for later Sunday could define the success or failure of President Obama’s administration. The vote is expected to be extremely close.
“This is a historic day and we are happy warriors,” Rep. John Larson, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, told CNN on Sunday. “We’ve got the votes.”
However, two other House Democratic leaders said some members still were making up their minds, and Republicans vowed a fight to the finish.
