Is the tax deal DOA on the House floor? Maybe, reports The Hill:
The House Democratic Caucus on Thursday rejected the tax deal negotiated between the White House and Senate Republicans.
The non-binding vote held during a closed meeting of the caucus puts tremendous pressure on House leaders to fight for changes to the proposal, and raises questions about whether the administration’s deal will move to the House floor.
“I don’t think there’s any doubt that [Speaker Nancy Pelosi] will follow the caucus,” Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) told reporters.
The President can no longer get what he wants out of his own party’s Congress — makes you wonder how well he’ll do with the new majority next year.
