House Democrats press Speaker Boehner to call a vote

WASHINGTON -- House Democratic leaders are pressing Speaker John Boehner to let the House vote on the Senate-approved bipartisan compromise that would avert much of the impact of the so-called fiscal cliff.

Following a nearly three-hour private meeting Tuesday between Vice President Joe Biden and House Democratic lawmakers, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats expected Boehner to allow the House to vote on the accord.

Boehner has said the House will vote on the Senate measure or vote to amend it.

The Senate passed the measure early Tuesday on an 89-8 vote. The compromise would allow tax increases on the nation's highest earners but prevent tax boosts from everyone else.

Once again, the weak leadership of Boehner comes into full display. He can't do anything prior to the January 3rd Speaker vote, so he probably will pander to the crazies of his party, extend all tax cuts, and send it back to the Senate.

Lookie lookie! I be stealing conservatives names again and trying to discredit them. But since I am not breaking any of the "rules" on Topix, I say this is just fine.

I, Le Dumbo, am a liar and a low life. Any other questions?

How about the rest of the story! House Republicans are upset because Democrats will not budge on spending cuts. Media (& you progressives) never tell the whole story!
