In it, but not of it. TPM DC

44 House Dems Press Pelosi For More Tax Cuts For The Wealthy


Late update: Note, not all the signers to the list support extending both the '01 and the '03 cuts. A few of them, including Rep. Scott Murphy (D-NY), support President Obama's position on the '01 cuts, but agree with Adler that the '03 cuts should be extended.

Ed note: A spokesman for Rep. David Wu (D-OR) says that Wu is not, in fact, a signatory to the Adler letter. We regret the error.

Ed note: A spokesman for Rep Betty Sutton (D-OH) says that Sutton did not sign the letter. Note, the list itself comes from an internal Adler communique to members, obtained by TPM, claiming these names as signers.
