Just like last year, John Boehner was unable to corral his party behind him, no matter how modest his proposal to "his" "party". Now I see House republicans trying to throw the light to Senate and President, which is pointless and stupid because we all know their position, and those two have been saying for months it is all up to republicans. So taxes go up for everyone. Next year Obama will vote for a tax CUT, and he will take all the credit. If republicans want basically Bush tax cuts again, wont happen, and they will be blamed for preventing tax cuts. Is this for real?
