Washington (CNN) - As the House gears up for a health care vote in the next 10 days, the top Republican in the House said he is confident Democrats "don't have the votes" right now to pass the reform bill.
"If they had the votes, then it would be law," said House Minority Leader John Boehner in an interview with CNN's Candy Crowley.
Democrats need 216 members of their 253 member caucus to vote in favor of the legislation, assuming no Republicans vote for it.
"They can pass this all on their own, the only bipartisanship involved in this town right now with regard to health care is there's bipartisan opposition to what they're attempting … If she had 216 votes, this bill would be long gone," Boehner said.
