  •  Adjourning the House would be panned.... (0+ / 0-)

    ...by the "Serious People."

    But in all honesty, All Madam Speaker has to do is not schedule a vote on anything that is simply extend all the tax cuts and very little else. The House doesn't have to and shouldn't simply vote on whatever may come out of the Senate. I sincerely hope that (if it comes to that) Schumer's million dollar amendment is the last deal that is offered (I'd grumble, but would find it acceptable IF it came with a long term UE extension, START ratification, DREAM Act, DADT).

    But we do need to at least show that the GOP isn't the only side of this willing to "pick up their toys and go home."
