So, like the asshole I am, I’ll quote myself from this morning:
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.
Here’s your answer:
House Dems say no to holding a vote on extending only the tax cuts for income under $250k.

Update: Commenters say that this still under discussion, and that I missed the subtleties of the Democratic position in my drunken stupor. Perhaps, but I’ll have to drink a hell of a lot more to believe that the Democrats in the House will do the right thing, and there isn’t enough gin in the world to make me believe that the Senate won’t fuck it up.
