As reported by several news outlets this weekend, Speaker of the House John Boehner is now advocating for a "Millionaire Tax". Thus the Republican Establishment begins the cave-in to the President on taxes.
John Boehner must not be re-elected to the Speakership in the new Congress. He is weak and has no core values beyond getting himself re-elected to his cushy congressional job. Whatever it takes. Including deals with the devil.
