Hotline Whip Count: The Deficit Commission

December 2, 2010

With less than 24 hours to go before the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility meets for a final vote on a draft proposal, commission chairmen Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson are scrambling to secure the 14 votes they need for a formal endorsement. And, despite early skepticism they would ever reach that goal, there is a path, albeit a narrow one, to pull out the political miracle.

Bowles and Simpson have secured nine votes, while two commissioners have said they will vote against the proposal. Commission members include: Sens. Max Baucus (D-MT), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Kent Conrad (D-ND), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Judd Gregg (R-NH), Reps. Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Dave Camp (R-MI), Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Paul Ryan (R-WI), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and John Spratt (D-SC), Honeywell International CEO David Cote, former Young & Rubicam Brands CEO Ann Fudge, Brookings Institute senior fellow Alice Rivlin and former SEIU president Andy Stern.

The vote will be held tomorrow.
