Schumer Silent On Bush Tax Cut Vote


Note that these questions were raised at a press conference about the Disclose Act -- the campaign finance bill Democrats are putting to a vote later this week that Schumer isn't shy about supporting. So there's your glimpse into whether or not Senate Dems see political advantage in high-income opposing tax cuts.

Greg Sargent reported this morning that a group of so-called moderate House Democrats are equally iffy on the political advantage of a tax cut vote and are urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not to hold a vote on only extending middle class cuts. Some of those Democrats have already signed a letter to Pelosi in support of a full extension of all tax cuts regardless of income.

Yesterday, Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) told reporters a vote on the tax cuts might come next week.
