    Pelley: If this super committee that you talk about recommends raising revenue, can you support that?

    Boehner: We'll see what it does. But I'm confident their focus will be on reducing expenditures coming out of Washington.

    Pelley: Can you image Republicans backing increased taxes?

    Boehner: I think that would be a stretch. It doesn't seem likely to me that that would be recommended, much less supported, but I've been surprised before.

    The last I heard Boehner was claiming it was IMPOSSIBLE to raise taxes under this deal.  This is a significant change of tune on his part.

    I think he is just talking through his hat.  Of course, he is going to declare victory, especially since he looked like such a putz when the Republicans would not support his OWN bill at first.
