Democrats Will Push Tax Cuts for Middle Class: "reports that Democrats in the House and Senate 'have decided to move ahead with votes after Thanksgiving to extend the Bush tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less,' daring Republicans to vote against the measure.
'These decisions come hours after Democratic leaders met at the White House with President Obama, where several sources say they talked extensively about the tax cuts... It is unclear if Democrats in either chamber have enough votes to pass only the middle class tax cuts. Democratic leaders are leaving open the possibility of compromise with Republicans if their measures do not pass. In fact, Democratic sources say Obama made clear in Thursday's meeting they may ultimately need to find a middle ground."
