"I see the Reid-McConnell bill as the only practical way forward."

      But GOP aides say the leaders are already looking past those votes to a potential deal with Democrats to raise the debt limit before an Aug. 2 deadline and spare Republican lawmakers from a political backlash.
     "McConnell is going to let cut, cap, and balance have its vote and then immediately move to plan B," said a GOP aide in reference to the fallback debt plan McConnell is negotiating with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
      Another Republican aide said McConnell’s contingency plan "has become plan A."

But can Plan A pass the house? When it debuted last week, the plan was described by all as an epic cave, and described by Democrats as a repudiation of the Club for Growth tax policies. Many words were written.

But can it pass the House? I've seen zero analysis of this. Won't the Tea Party Caucus block it, just like every other proposed compromise?
