Washington (CNN) - An ongoing CNN survey reveals that 27 Democrats plan to vote against the Senate health care bill as currently written.
Both Democrats and Republicans are racing to the magic number of 216. If supporters of the bill secure 216 'yes' votes, the bill passes; conversely, if opponents secure 216 'no' votes, the bill fails.
If all 178 Republican members vote against the bill as expected, opponents are once again 11 votes short of the 216 needed to kill the bill.
Earlier Wednesday, Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinch of Ohio announced that he will vote in favor of the Senate bill, despite previous statements that he was firmly opposed to the bill. His change in position was offset by other updates confirmed Wednesday by CNN:
- Dennis Kucinich, OH-10, goes from "no" to "yes"
- Mike Doyle, PA-14, moves from "Undecided" to "Yes"
- Steve Dreihaus, OH-01, moves from "undecided" to "No unless modified"
- Ike Skelton, MO-04, moves from "Undecided" to "No"
- Dale Kildee, MI-05, moves from "Has not responded" to "Yes"
