Crunch time: Mike Pence voting no on the tax cuts deal

This is the first time I’ve thought the whole deal really might collapse in the House.

“At the end of the day, I’ve just come to the conclusion: the American people did not vote for more stimulus,” Pence said on conservative talker Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Therefore, I will not vote for this tax deal when it comes to the floor of the House of Representatives.”

Pence joins the ranks of conservatives, many of whom have ties to the Tea Party movement, who have opposed the deal. The Indiana Republican echoed their arguments against the bill; Pence said the 13-month extension of unemployment benefits would only bloat the deficit, and that extending the tax rates for only two years wouldn’t provide adequate certainty in the markets.

"Pence is the man who should have gotten the Speakers job instead of he deal making cry baby we got."

Yep. The votes must not have been there for Pence. I can't think of any other reason to not want that job. Boehner is going to be a problem.

Whoever the Republican Speaker is, he's going to be attacked. You just can't make it as easy for the opposition (read:media) as Boehner has thus far. Pence is a lot more media savvy and media competent.

Principled man.

Just following Palin's lead.

He'd make a good VP.

If Pence is against it, then I’m against it.

He needs to be the leader of the Republican party.

Bachmann, DeMint, Palin, Pence, Rubio, and Ryan need to be in tops spots within the federal government.

The RINOs that voted for the pork-laden bill should be fired. They didn't get it.
