it is already widely accepted that the dems will , immediately, propose a tax cut for those below $250,000 which the GOP will have no choice but to go along with.

But they will only vote for it IF it includes tax cuts for the wealthy as well. Sound familiar? Otherwise, they vote against it. The fun begins....

The big problem for conservatives is 2014 is just around the corner in terms of election lead times--and having a bunch of conservatives voting AGAINST tax cuts will undercut their base considerably. Liberals could gain control of the House 2015-2016. That loss would be called Boehner's failure.
