WHIP COUNT: Budget deal appears to have votes to pass Congress

The budget deal struck by President Obama and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to avert a government shutdown appears to have the votes to clear the House and Senate.

Votes are expected in both chambers on Thursday.

While there will be defections on the right and left, Capitol Hill sources believe the funding bill for the remainder of fiscal 2011 will clear both chambers. The Senate vote, however, is expected to be more of a cliffhanger than the House vote. Sixty votes are required in the Senate as opposed to a simple majority in the House.

A rundown of The Hill’s whip count follows. Please email updates to bcusack@thehill.com.
