So..I'm on twitter @shevas01 and I get this tweet from Nancy Pelosi noting that she just filed the Discharge Petition If Nancy Pelosi can get 218 signatures on this petition it will allow us to bypass John Boehner and the Tea Party caucus to bring the President's middle class tax cut bill to the floor for a vote.  We need 218 in order for them to bring the middle class tax break bill to the House of Representatives floor.  Now it is time for us to get to work and start calling representatives to make sure their names are on this list.  Any ideas as to what republicans need to be targeted?  We find them and get to work via phone and on the ground.  

9:33 AM PT: UPDATE: President Obama just released a campaign-style ad for the tax biil.  .  
This is INCREDIBLE. There will be political consequences and repercussions for the House GOP this time.

9:45 AM PT: UPDATE II: We are up to 37 Representatives now!!

9:49 AM PT: UPDATE III:  TPM just posted the story as well

h/t to Senor Unoball

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
