BRIDGET JOHNSON: Boehner’s Plan B Bombs. “In fact, the compromise legislation — which was under the shadow of a veto threat anyway — didn’t even make it to the floor due to a lack of GOP support. . . . The failure to even bring Plan B to the floor may have been pushback from conservatives, but gives Democrats some leverage in demanding that the Senate’s tax-cut extension (the original $250,000 proposal favored by President Obama) to the floor. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claims there are enough votes from his party and moderate Republicans in the House for passage.” Not feeling like things are being especially well run.

UPDATE: GOP Forgoes Plan B; Pulls Out Instead.
