GOP leadership is apparently having a lot of trouble wrangling 218 Republican votes for Speaker John Boehner's budget plan (which every Democratic senator has vowed to oppose) because the vote, which was expected to take place around 6 p.m. tonight, has been delayed. Now they're just doing busywork. NBC News reports: "Boehner's bill has been pulled off the floor for the time being. The House is now re-naming post offices." [WP, First Read/MSNBC]
