Speaker Boehner: "Mr. President, It's Plan B or Be Responsible For the Largest Tax Hike In History" *drops mic*

A very strong statement from Speaker Boehner:

"Tomorrow the House will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every American -- 99.81% of the American people. Then the President will have a decision to make. He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history."

I think the Speaker has been disatisfied with the media coverage of Plan B thus far. By keeping his statement to 56 seconds, he basically gets to choose the content of the clip used by the broadcast evening newscasts this evening. Yesterday, Boehner said he was still open to negotiations with President Obama. This is a direct rebuke to Obama's noon presser wherein he said he would not negotiate over many aspects of the fiscall cliff.

House GOP has been whipping Plan B since yesterday. Americans for Tax Reform (Norquist's outfit) is for it, Heritage Action* is against it. I'd say Boehner's got the votes.

*I originally posted that Heritage Action is Senator DeMint's soon-to-be-outfit. A helpful reader reminded me that Heritage Action is kept separate from Heritage for tax purposes. DeMint will be at the later, not the former.
