The House will pass it. There are good things in it as it stands, such as it is. Obama caved to the 400/450k limit. Give him that much. AMT is gone permanently. The cuts come later and they will.
Rhinelander - I agree, its a good start. If the House throws in a few more things the public really likes this could be a good start. I would ask for ending ‘child tax credits for illegals’ and pay raises for Gov’t employees. It would be hard for the RATs to turn down those two items in the face of public opinion.
