Rep. Fudge: Boehner Doesn’t Have Votes to Pass DHS Bill Without Dems
REID: "There does seem to be movement taking place in the House of Representatives. Are you confident as a member of the House, that a funding bill, a short-term funding little about pass before the deadline tonight?"
FUDGE: "Joy, I'm very confident something is going to pass tonight. The Senate has gone -- the Senate has gone home. And they said they will pass a spending bill. I don't know it is short-term or long-term, which is the same thing that the Senate passed this morning and that is my guess, it will be a long-term and not a short-term bill.
REID: "Does John Boehner have the strength to pass a bill and still insisting it on being a majority of the majority or will he have to come to the Democrats?"
FUDGE: "I believe he will have to come to us. There is no question in my mind that the reason they have a delay today is because they don't have enough votes to pass it because I believe we'll take part in DHS getting passed today."
