The House voted to extended some of the Bush-era tax cuts for lower and middle class Americans. The bill passed 234-188, with three Republicans voting in favor, and 20 Democrats voting against.
Speaker-in-waiting John Boehner called this very same vote on middle class tax cuts "chicken crap" earlier today. His words.
The White House and members of the Senate continue to haggle over a compromise. So this initiative is still very much TBD. Republicans generally want these cuts extended across the board. The White House and Democrats want them extended just for those making less than $250,000 a year.
