House Republicans will go first. On Thursday, they will bring up the Senate Democrats’ tax bill, which extends income rates for only the middle class. That Democratic bill will fail to win a majority, and House Republicans will then try to pass their own legislation extending current tax rates for all income under $1 million.Dozens and dozens of Republicans have said they support the Senate bill! Can Boehner hold ranks and get those same Republicans to vote against the Senate bill they support and the President has said he would sign into law immediately, and instead vote for a bill Obama has said that he will veto? This seems like a huge risk Boehner is taking.
If the grassroots works the phones in the next 24 hours we can make sure the Senate bill passes and this goes down as one of Boehner's biggest mistakes of his speakership.
