The Republican leadership today refused to allow a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on a bipartisan Senate compromise bill to extend the payroll tax cut, unemployment benefits and Medicare payments to physicians. As a result, Republicans will be responsible when middle-class families see their tax increases on January 1.

The GOP leadership is willing to let taxes increase for middle-class families and for American businesses in order to appease the most extreme element of their party. They are not allowing a vote in the House on this bill because they are afraid it will pass.

Compromises usually require some nose-holding, and this compromise is no exception. But with millions of families struggling in a tough economy, I'm not going to vote to kick workers off extended unemployment benefits or end the break that 160 million Americans are getting on payroll taxes.The compromise to extend payroll tax cuts and unemployment benefits obviously included House Republican leaders whatever they may say now. Their going back on that compromise now will make it very difficult to negotiate any compromise in the future.
