Boehner told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “If the only option I have is to vote for those at $250,000 and below, of course I’m going to do that.”
This is nothing but common sense. Did anyone doubt that Republicans will vote for any tax cut that comes to the floor within months of an election? After that vote, they’ll go home and complain that Democrats didn’t let them cut taxes far enough, and also cry about the “Democrat deficit”. They’re like zombies who cry for “tax cuts” instead of “brains”.
The real question is whether the Blue Dogs (or, as McClatchy calls them, “moderate Democrats”) will vote for tax cuts for the middle class without tax cuts for those who make over $250K.
