Why do I get the feeling he will end up being right?
(The Hill) — Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday predicted the GOP will fold and said Democrats should wait out the House Republicans over the payroll tax cut extension.
“In a few days, they will fold unless someone falls for these subterfuges which get them off the hook without producing a middle class tax cut,” he said on MSNBC.
House Republicans the previous day delayed a vote on the Senate-passed bill that would extend the payroll tax cut for two months. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other House Republicans have said the legislation needs to be extended for an entire year and they are willing to stay in Washington D.C. until it gets done.
