    I had emailed Rep. Adam Smith and Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, suggesting that they let all of the tax cuts expire. They all responded that they wanted to extend the middle class tax cuts, but not continue the extra tax cut for the rich.

    I have written to each of them again today, reminding them of what they wrote to me before, and suggesting that they not cave to Republican pressure. In the case of Mr. Smith, I asked how he will vote if the Senate sends the bill back to the House with the extra tax cut in it.

    I also told them that if the tax cuts for the wealthy continue for another two years, we are likely to lose the White House and the Senate, at which point those tax cuts will be with us permanently because the Republicans will just do whatever they want.

    I didn't do it. Nobody saw me. You can't prove anything. --Bart Simpson
