And why is Eric so cranky? Via email alert:
|House Republican leaders abruptly pulled their fallback tax bill from the floor Thursday night, conceding that they did not have the votes to pass it.|
|“The House did not take up the tax measure today because it did not have sufficient support from our members to pass,” Speaker John A. Boehner said in a statement. “Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff.”|
|The decision was a major setback for the speaker, who was pushing his so-called Plan B to prevent lower tax rates from expiring on most Americans. It came after the House had narrowly approved a plan to suspend planned Pentagon cuts.|
Yes, McConnell filibustered himself and The Boehner pulled his own bill. This must be why they call themselves the “adult” party. What next? Firing themselves?
Plan BS was aborted. Will there be a Billhood proposal?
We on Twitter got a million of ‘em folks, a million of ‘em. Oh, but I kid.
