Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California, and Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland -- The top two House Democrats are mostly watching and waiting. But they will play a critical role once Boehner decides his next move.

Hoyer will be interesting to watch; he has strongly opposed both the House and Senate plans as cutting too much in spending.
