So..I'm on twitter @shevas01 and I get this tweet from Nancy Pelosi noting that she just filed the Discharge Petition http://clerk.house.gov/.... 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 http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
