Actually, it seems all but certain that the Senate-passed version won't pass in that form in the House. Eric Cantor won't support it and Speaker Boehner won't express support. The overwhelming Senate support could make this a watershed moment for the relationship between the Republican party and the Tea Party Movement. Specifically, Ron Johnson and Pat Toomey as yes votes is an interesting moment for the TPM; both are seen as movement favorites.
I continue to believe agreeing to this type of compromise can only hurt Republicans. Is taking co-ownership of the largest bi-patisan tax hike since "read my lips" really better than letting taxes rise on everyone and having no ownershp of that increase? I'll ask Senator Johnson that tomorrow.
