Interesting goings-on in Washington. On the House floor just now, Democrats have just withdrawn the rule on the tax deal and moved on to a different bill providing technical corrections for the bankruptcy law.
Jo Maney from GOP Rep. David Dreier’s office explains: “Dems just pulled tax bill rule…they can amend it on the floor without having to go to back to committee. But it’s unclear how they will proceed at this point.”
Jamie Dupree is on the House floor interviewing Dems about the mess. He tweets: “What a screw up” one floor staffer just told me; House Dems “in the process of discussing” said one top Dem…Some Dems say a confusing rule & parliamentary situation has led to lack of votes for tax deal.”blog comments powered by Disqus
