If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
After House Speaker John Boehner received a disappointing score from the Congressional Budget Office yesterday on his debt-limit legislation, House Republicans are touting revised numbers for the plan.
GOP aides say the revised CBO score confirms spending cuts exceed the debt hike, and that there are $22 billion in cuts in the first year.
According to these new numbers, the House GOP leadership would raise the debt ceiling by $900 billion, which would keep the country from defaulting until approximately some time in Feb. 2012.
Guidance for tomorrow: There should be two big votes -- 1) the rule for Boehner's debt-ceiling bill, and 2) a final vote on it.
