    Pelosi pledges to win changes as House Dems reject tax-cut deal

    Pelosi pledges to win changes as House Dems reject tax-cut deal

    Pelosi pledges to win changes as House Dems reject tax-cut deal - TheHill.com


    The House Democratic Caucus on Thursday rejected the tax deal negotiated between the White House and Senate Republicans.

    The non-binding vote of the caucus held during a closed-door meeting puts tremendous pressure on House leaders to win changes to a proposal the White House has presented as a "take it or leave it" package.


    Why do they insist on calling this a "Tax cut" deal, no one is getting a tax cut, they just if passed, won't be raised.

    It would be a tax cut and if this passes, the right wing could say it's Obama's tax cut rather than Bush's in 2012. Not rocket science.

    Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic caucus is trying to save Obama from himself.

    actually enacting this would help Obama in 2012

    and hurt the dems if they oppose it

    This, I am certain, comes as no surprise to anyone on The Hill. It's all about perception. IMO, they will lower the threshhold for inheritance taxes from its proposed $5 million and increase the tax percentage back to what it was before. I predict this will happen -- and that both sides knew it was going to happen all along.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Apparently it is rocket science.... If the bill fails, all our taxes go up, if it passes, no body's taxes for down.

    It's not a tax cut.
